Matthew 10_42

Matthew 10:34-42

In the words of Mother Teresa, “The gospel is written on your fingers.” Holding up her fingers, one at a time, she accented each word: “You-Did-It-To-Me.” Mother Teresa then added: “At the end of your life, your five fingers will either excuse you or accuse you of doing it unto the least of these. You-Did-It-To-Me.”

Mother Teresa understood Jesus’ teaching to the very core of her being. There are many others who also understand the call to give a cup of cold water to those in need.

Water Missions International is a nonprofit Christian engineering organization providing sustainable safe water and sanitation solutions for people in developing countries and disaster areas. The congregations of the NALC Mission District saw a powerful demonstration of this ministry at our recent convocation in Gastonia, NC.

This is one of the many ways to fulfill Jesus’ directive.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, open up avenues so that I may reach out in Your holy name. Amen.

Today’s devotion was written by Thomas W. Corbell, Pastor of  Mt. Hermon Lutheran Church in Statesville, NC.

    Her reference is written in completion in Matthew 25:31-46 as Matthew writes about the sheep and goats. This is the very heartbeat of Naomi’s Heart Mission in the Philippines.
