Daily Nugget

   Wednesday, June 19th, 2013.  Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

In his book, Daily Gems, D.L. Moody wrote that after the great Chicago fire of 1871 he went to New York to solicit funds for fire victims. When he arrived, he was introduced to a wealthy man who was reported to be very generous. Impressed by the great need in Chicago, he gave Moody a large check. He then directed the evangelist to several other men in the area who also gave liberal contributions. When Mr. Moody was about to leave, he shook his benefactor’s hand and said, “If you ever come to Chicago, be sure to call on me. I’ll return your favor.” The man responded, “Mr. Moody, don’t wait for me to come. Do it to the first man that comes along.”

Indeed, procrastination is an enemy to being who God wants us to be.  In Galatians 6:9-10, the apostle Paul warns us with these words: “Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”

God, help us to be Your hands to whoever we meet today.  Amen.
Bro. Bill
In GOD we Trust!
