Advent Devotional – Monday, December 9, 2019 – Feeding Hungry People

Scripture: Matthew 25:40

 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Wednesday dinner for about forty church members was progressing as usual when two men entered the hallway, and one of them said, “We hear that you serve food here.” “We do,” I replied, “Won’t you come and join us”? That was how it all got started.

One man was white and one man was black. One could hardly tell the difference. They appeared to have been working in asphalt or some other dirty job all day. I imagined that their appetites were active so I fed them generously, and they responded to the challenge of eating a hearty dinner.

They thanked us graciously, and I invited them back for next Wednesday’s dinner. They came and each brought a friend. It has all been in God’s hands since then. In fact, it was in His hands before this point, I just didn’t realize this was the start of Lynchburg, VA’s Parkview Community Mission, whose programs and outreach extend throughout Central Virginia. It is no secret what God can do!

Prayer: Dear God, thank you for the many ways that You surprise us, the many ways that You use us, and the many ways that You show us Your love. Amen.
