Thought for Today

  1. Thought for Today

    Good Day, Friends; The old saying, "God helps those who help themselves", while not in scripture, does bring up an interesting point. This old saying essentially means that if we do what is right in and for our own lives, God will reward us. While that is admirable, it is somewhat incomplete. Perhaps the person who coined that saying should have considered an alternate wording... "God helps those who helps others." Now THAT is a personal commitment that means much more to God, I'm sure. Helping ourselves to get through life as best as we can is fine, but when we help others, by charity or by a kindness and concern for our fellow humans, we are doing much more than just helping ourselves.

    May God bless.
  2. A big amen to that Pastor Gary!
