In the Bible, James encouraged us to put our faith at work with actions. He asks if you just say to the needy persons “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? James 2:16-17
Like the early believers throughout the Roman world sent their donations to the believers suffering in Jerusalem, the Body of Christ across the nations sent their prayers and donations to the churches in Myanmar. Some time after the coup, helping the neediest people became a risk due to political unrest. There are great challenges still today.
Amidst this situation, the good works are still happening. One of our ministry partners has been reaching to the neediest people whenever they receive resources from friends around the world. Many are blessed the acts of kindness and able to taste the love of Christ.
Jesus said, “And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”
Matthew 10:42 (NIV)
