“Then the King will say to those on his right,
‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father,
inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world.
For I was hungry, and you fed me.
I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink.
I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.
I was naked, and you gave me clothing.
I was sick, and you cared for me.
I was in prison, and you visited me.’
“Then these righteous ones will reply,
‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you?
Or thirsty and give you something to drink?
Or a stranger and show you hospitality?
Or naked and give you clothing?
When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
“And the King will say,
‘I tell you the truth, when you did it
to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,
you were doing it to me!’”
We are so honored to be partnering with you, our (in)courage sisters, to bless the mamas and babies of Mercy House Kenya this fall. You are feeding, clothing, caring for the least of these in an amazing way! To take part – or to learn more – visit the (in)Mercy project at Pure Charity.
I am touched this morning. Inspired, really. Thank you, incourage friends for reminding us what’s important.
And over at Creekside, I’m sharing some Scripture … and a brand new friend, discovered on an evening beach walk this week.
Blessed Sabbath, sisters.

I blogged (on my ‘hobby blog’ http://shoppingconsultantextraordinaire.blogspot.com/2013/09/freeset-have-mercy.html) about (in) Mercy (and the UPS plane crash) after seeing it on (in) courage. I was hoping my facebook friends would open their hearts. I plan on donating some at the beginning of the month. I would love to see the happy little momma’s faces when they are given stuff for their babies! Joyous!!

Loved the scripture.
I find myself wanting to help people more and more. I have actually been to prison–through a ministry and seen prisoners hearts just melt due to the love shown them. One time a prisoner said that the birthday cake we gave him was the first one he ever received.
I have done the “drive-through difference” from a local Christian radio station. You go to a drive-through and pay for the person behind you and give them a letter. I just took a friend from work (2x) and paid for her meals.
I know Jesus is proud of all of you women here at (In) Courage!
