Red Letter Challenge – Day 30

October 9 – Day 30
“Giving” 

“I was naked and you gave me clothing.” – Matthew 25:36

Jesus talks in His Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5 about making sure we don’t store up treasures on earth, but instead store up treasures in heaven.  He mentions not worrying about clothes, and this is something most of us have never had to worry about in our lives.  In fact, we could probably ask ourselves, “Do we have too much?  Can someone else benefit from the stuff that’s just sitting in our closets and dressers?

Imagine Jesus on the side of the road with no clothes.  If you knew it was Jesus what would you do?  Of course you would clothe Him.  You would give Him whatever He needed.  If your dressers or closets are full and you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’ll have clothes tomorrow, you can be a big part in completing today’s challenge.

Challenge: Go through your dressers and closets and give all the clothes you don’t need to charity. 

God’s Blessings,
Pastor Bill

 

Today’s devotion came from the book, “Red Letter Challenge,” by Zach Zehnder, pages 180-183.
