Feed the hungry!
Jesus called his disciples “sheep,” and he commissioned them to reach out to others. He further explained that when they did service for others, they were doing service to him (Matthew 25:31-46). Those who did not do outreach, Jesus called “goats.” He exclaimed that if they failed to serve others, they failed to serve him.
The first dimension of outreach that Jesus taught was feeding those who are hungry. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we must follow his example and feed God’s sheep both spiritually and naturally. We feed people spiritually with truth principles that will empower them to be their best selves and live their best lives. We feed people naturally by making sure that they have well-balanced meals to sustain them.
God has provided enough resources in the earth to ensure that all of creation is fed. If people are without food, it is because we have not properly distributed that which God has given us. As humankind, we must be better stewards of the provisions God has made. Sometimes, the food we waste is enough for someone else to have a meal.
This week at Unity of Midtown, we are demonstrating outreach by collecting canned goods and other non-perishable food items for those who may be experiencing a financial challenge in St. Petersburg. Let’s reach out together!
Bring your canned goods and other non-perishable items to the church (located at 511 Prescott St. S.) at any of the following times:
- Thursdays from 11–7:30 p.m. (during our office hours and Prayer and Healing service)
- Sundays from 9:30– 1 p.m. (during any of our classes or services)
