Each one of us are made in the Image of God. As I looked at this drawing by one of our own, I couldn’t help but think of those who received the Grace Bags in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. I said a prayer for them and then I thanked God for the opportunity we had to serve them. Your reward will be waiting in Heaven but then, I believe part of the reward was in the opportunity we had to do unto others. We are a blessed people and each and every person on this Earth is important to God and to us.
We are back from Macon and all of us are changed in some way. Today we stopped at Piedmont Park in Atlanta and walked through handing out Grace Bags to the homeless. We got the idea from Sandra who had seen it in a devotional. All of the youth and leaders went to Wal Mart and picked up items like t-shirts, bottled water, canned food, socks, etc…… we packed them in backpacks and then handed them out. It was a great idea and we were blessed more than those who received the gift.
We met and talked with at least 18 people, some shared some of their story and some thanked Jesus right there on the spot for the gift. We were amazed.
As always we went to serve and we were served by others. Look for pictures from the trip soon.
