The Least of These

Matthew 25:34-40

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 For I was an hungred, and ye bgave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the bleast of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

I have been looking around to see what things I could do to be more of service to those around me. I realized that there are some things that I have already been doing and have found some that I have started doing. I am not going to list them here because I mostly want to just do them without a lot of fanfare and publicity. And I think the good feeling is enough reward. I know and that is good enough.

However, there are times that I think it would be ok for me to let you know about ways that we can all serve those in need.

Remember the family I told you about earlier in the week? There will be a memorial for them Friday, August 29th at 7:30 pm at the CHOICE offices located at 7879 South 1530 West, West Jordan, Utah. Details on a memorial assistance fund to help the Rabanales children Josue, Daniel & Lara can be found here.

Or there is this family torn apart in an different plane crash earlier this month. This crash took place closer to home, St. Johns, AZ- Not far from where I grew up. There are auctions going on all around the blogosphere to help with recovery funds for this family. My friend Lindsey has a quilt up for auction here. Auction goes until Sunday. You can find lists for other auctions at Design Mom or bird on the lawn.

I am going to post links to the donation funds for both these families on my sidebar.
