Dare to Share

Share Yourself

Jesus taught us: “Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.” (Luke 3:11) Yet sometimes it seems really hard to share. We fear we and our families don’t have enough to spare–or maybe we won’t soon. But Jesus trusted God to provide.

Sharing

He didn’t hold back anything–not food or drink, or his wisdom or faith in God, that the Lord would always provide what was needed.

Bring What You Have

He encouraged people to bring what they had, and when they did, thousands were fed.

Give to Others

Jesus gave everything–his love, his peace, even his body and blood. He gave his life. So that people–we–would come to know the kingdom of God. If we follow him, shouldn’t we be willing to do the same?

Share with Prisoners

We can share with those in prison, every kind of prison.

Share with Those Who Are Hungry

WIth those who are hungry–for food and in every way.

Share Everything: Your Body and Blood

As we follow him, let’s dare to share as he did. Giving everything: body, blood, sweat, tears…

Share with the Sick

Let’s try to comfort and heal those who are ill–with any kind of sickness.

Share with the Community

As Jesus teaches in Matthew 22:37-38, let’s share ourselves with our communities–bringing all our heart, soul, mind, and spirit. In this way, I pray, may we succeed in loving our neighbors as ourselves. And truly follow Jesus the Messiah.
