The Only One

Friday, January 3, 2014

I once connected the pieces of a puzzle.  Only one piece was missing, but yet the puzzle was dreadfully incomplete, for that piece was needed to fill the gap.
Your life may be only one small piece of God's creation, but every piece is needed to complete His plan.  Watch for opportunities to bless others and be Christ's light in this dark world.

Every moment has a need and a reason.  Maybe an elderly gentleman needs a friendly smile, maybe the lady at the thrift store needs to be told pink is her color,  maybe a friend needs a word of encouragement.  Don't just leave it to "someone" to brighten their day; be that someone, you may be the only one who can.

How we treat others is a reflection of how we would treat Jesus.  Matthew 25 gives us a glimpse of the Judgment Day when God will divide the righteous from the wicked.  Jesus said to the righteous: "Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me."  They asked him when this happened, and He told them: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

Jesus said even giving someone a glass of cold water has its reward.  You may not be able to change the entire world, but you can change someone's world for the better.  Find God's plan for your life today; you are the only one who can fulfill it.  God will bless you as you bless others.
