"Faye's daily words of encouragemnt"# 8 Todays word is: Charity

Charity  always begins at home and spreads abroad.
Charity always begins at home and spreads abroad.

"Faye's daily words of encoureagement" #8 Todays word is : Charity

1 Peter chapter 4 - verse 8 : Andabove all things have fer vent charity among ourseves: for charity covers a multitude of sins.

2 Peter chapter 1 - 7 :   And Godliness,brotherly  kindness; to brotherly kindness charity

Colossians chapter 3 - vesre14 : And above all  these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

Charity means: alms giving an instution for providing for the poor.

As children growing up, our mother taught us, that charity begins at home and spreads abroad.then you're a child, you don't know what it means, but once I became an adult  and start living it; I came into the knowledge of what the meaning of the  word charity really meant.  I have learned that charity and giving goes hand in hand and that we're suppose to help those that are less fortunate than us.

Charity is giving of ourselves and services to those in dire need of help.  Charity is what ever God put on your heart to give.  I remember even though we didn't have a lot of material things, my mother would always cook enough food in case someone came by hungry; so we could  feed them.  I follow that same pattern in my life, I always cook enough to always feed someone else.  With God in mind, it's always the sincere thought that counts.

      Jesus teaches in His ministry faith, hope, love all through His time walking the earth. God's will is for all who will accept it and upon accepting the will of God comes the responsibility of loving self and others alike. Love is an act of charity and charity is purely an act of love.

      Mark 12:44 says "She out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood."

      God looks at the heart, not the hand; the giver not the gift. At some point if we believe and love God, we will surely know charity also! Thank you for sharing. Truly wonderful inspiration...
