Today's Thought Provoker
Something that really impacted me was working at the Soup Kitchen. It was a reality check to see how many homeless families there are, especially seeing little kids. The weird thing was the kids were so happy and unaffected by their condition. They were just happy to play with us.
The easiest way to make someone smile is to let them know the Lord loves them. Giving someone a hot meal can be the most blessed thing they get that day. As long as you talk to them like the human beings they are, you will most likely make their day. Money isn't everything. The Lord's touch and His word can make even the poorest man feel rich.
