Feeding the Poor Children
June 9, 2010 12:30am CST
Feeding the poor children in our community is one of the many ministries we have in our church. As a pastor and a minister, I have deep burden in helping these kids through feeding and scholarship. I have been praying that God will release the financial support inorder to continue this kind of ministry.

I think its really wonderful that you are so concerned with helping the poor. You are truly following in the footsteps of Jesus when he gave the Sermon on the Mount. I also seem to remember him saying something like "If you have two shirts, give one to the person who has none." Such clear teachings, yet so few Christians follow it. I know so many Christians who don't give to charity at all, and often complain about their tax dollars going to food stamps programs and Medicaid. How are these conservative "Christians" upholding the teachings of Christ? I am not a Christian, but I often get angry at all the people who claim to be followers of Christ (and have no problem telling people like me that we are going to hell) yet are completely selfish and indifferent to the plight of those less fortunate. When I read messages like yours, it helps me to realize that not all Christians are hypocrites. I read a telling statistic recently. It said that although Evangelical Christians believe all non-Christians are going to hell, they spend more on bubble gum every year than they donate to missions work. That says a lot.

Thanks for your comment opalina143. I appreciate you for being honest enough about yourself. I got what you are saying and it makes me sad that there are some Christians not living in accordance to the Word of God and they make some non-Christians stumbled! I just want to emphasize to you that there is a different between Christian and Professing Christian. The real meaning of Christians are those people who follow the footsteps of Jesus and live in accordance to His Words, while professing Christians are those who claimed that they are Christians and yet they live a life of hypocrisy. Jesus loves you so much that He gave His life for you and He wants to bless your life too. Be blessed!

I think you must have a good heart, but while you're working to feed the poor children, be careful that you don't make them continuously dependent on you. Hear from Leviticus 19:9,10 what God instructed regarding helping the poor: "When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your fields, nor shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest. And you shall not glean your vineyards, nor shall you gather every grape of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger; I am the Lord your God." It's obvious from these verses that the owner of the field and vineyard was instructed to help the poor and the stranger, but the poor and stranger were not to be given a free handout. If they wanted what was in the field and the vineyard, they had to work for it by gathering it themselves. Isn't there more appreciation for a thing if you have to work for it?

That is a good ministry pastor. In our church we do have feeding programs, medical missions, operation tule, giving school supplies, and etc. You can see that on my facebook. Just see to it that word of God must be shared to them first before doing anything. What I am happy is, it is not our church who sole spending the finances but the church members. I pray that God will release financial blessing in your church.
