April 28 Today’s thought — A Morsal of Kindness

9:30 this morning

Good Morning

Suppose someone has enough to live and sees a brother or sister in need, but does not help. then God’s love is not living in that person. 1John 3:17

Leo Tolstoy, the great Russian writer, tells of the time he was walking down the street and passed a beggar. Tolstoy reached into his pocket to give the beggar some money, but his pocket was empty. Tolstoy turned to the man and said, “I’m sorry, my brother, but I have nothing to give.”

The beggar brightened and said, “You have given me more than I asked for–for you have called me brother.”
To the loved, a word of affection is a morsel, but to the love–starved, a word of affection can be a feast. Max Lucado, He Still Moves Stones

1John 3:17  But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? KJV

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
