Breaking bread and giving thanks

We would appreciate your prayers for today as we invite all of our Jubilee Food Pantry guests into our house this afternoon.  Everyone will be eating turkey soup and rolls together before our guests walk through the pantry.  It is COLD today and we are thankful to share some warmth with everyone.

One of our favorite scripture passages is Luke 14:7-24.  Jesus talks about humility and the parable of the Great Feast.

12 Then he turned to his host. “When you put on a luncheon or a banquet,” he said, “don’t invite your friends, brothers, relatives, and rich neighbors. For they will invite you back, and that will be your only reward. Instead, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. Then at the resurrection of the righteous, God will reward you for inviting those who could not repay you.”

As we invite those who cannot repay us, into our home, we trust and obey Jesus to join us, and cover our home in grace, peace and love.

Thank you to our beautiful neighbors, Dick and Salome, across the street who roasted the turkey yesterday and made some yummy broth for the soup.

Please pray for our family’s health also….it seems Avery has come down with Strep Throat and that is NOT something we want to share- with anyone!

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.       Philippians 4:4-7
