It is very important to know the difference between God’s responsibility and our responsibility. God created us and provided us with the necessary means to improve our lives and the environment. He has also ordained us to reach out to the people in need around us. We must decide to receive the call with the help of the Holy Spirit of God and fulfill the tasks entrusted to us.
One of our very simple missions is Hospitality. Jesus took pity on the people he met and nourished them with both the word of God and physical food. (Mark 6:34; Matthew 14: 13-21)
Matthew 10:42 “And whosoever drinketh one of these little ones only giveth a cup of cold water, in the name of once disciples; verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his wages at all.
Matthew 25: 34-36 “Then the King will say to those who are at his right hand: Come, you blessed My Father! Bear that kingdom which is prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I have been hungry, and you have fed me; I have been thirsty, and you have given me to drink; I was a stranger, and you have kept me in hiding. I was naked, and you clothed me; I have been mad, and you have visited me; I was in prison, and you have come to me.
