"Feeding the Soul"
Luke 19:1-10 "Today salvation has come to this house." Jesus meets Zaccheaus, a well to do tax collector, he has everythng materially everything he needs- by the worlds standards he was successful, but he still felt empty--and in Jesus he found wholeness. People see what we do on the streets--hand out food, socks--and to them that is material needs being met, but the reality is that they are but a tool--a tool to give us a chance to provide love, care, and support. The food, socks, pass away, but the moments we spend with people lasts for ever. Cody is 21, and he told me the other night that I am the only person in a long time that takes time to talk to him, makes him feel like he is a person. Our outward efforts are simply a tool to provide the inward, spirit efforts.
