Buying Christ a bannana nut muffin

If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know I used to sprinkle a lot more content on theology and Christ in general.  My bad.  I should add more.  However, I’m going to leave theology and teaching to the pros.   I’m a deacon and as such I don’t teach on theological matters.  My ministry is a practical one.  So I will start trying to add more practical, hands-on ways to show people you belong to Christ.

Here is one way I demonstrated Christ’s love in a very practical way.  I work downtown and there are a LOT of homeless and drug addicted people that hang out down here.   On Tuesday a older woman  (obviously from one of the above categories) walked up to me and asked for money to buy some food because she was having a diabetic reaction.  I didn’t give her any money.  But I did walk with her to a local cafe and asked her to order whatever she thought she needed to help with her “diabetic reaction.”  She ordered a bannana nut muffin.  That’s all she wanted.  So I paid for her and told her that Christ had provided for her this morning and to be sure and thank Him.

“Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” – Matthew 25:40

I’ve walked past people ignoring their needs for far too long.  Praise God that He gave me someone to minister to.
