The least of these...

I am noticing that my recent posts are full of scripture and spiritual topics lately. God is working on my life and I am excited about it. If you find yourself rolling your eyes when you visit my blog, "Oh my goodness, another Bible verse?" I suggest that you pray for God to open your heart to what He has for your life.
God has been telling me over and over, beating me over the head, really, that true faith will show itself in caring for those less fortunate. Today, I read in James 4:17 "Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn't do it, sins."
Yeah. So, I really need to get my butt in gear. It is of no use for me to have an epiphany (a piffy-what?) of what God wants from me and then be immobilized by whatever it is that keeps me from action. I think my upbringing of "don't pry" keeps me from hearing about what people need, and my cushy life keeps me away from places where I would see what people need.
So, my prayer is that God would show me the need, and give me the courage to mention it and offer my help.
I want to hear how others are living out their faith by giving food to the hungry, drink to the thirsty, clothes to the naked, and shelter to homeless. Please comment on how you are doing it, or how you are going to do it.
