All Thou Couldst Give

How is it I was worth all you could give That I, through thee, with our Father might live. Through agony suffered in Gethsemane You’ve given our Father’s kingdom to me.

You bled and died on Calvary’s hill To seal yourself to the Father’s will. While heavenly legions awaited your call You silently suffered,

57 Cents That Made History

A sobbing little girl stood near a small church from which she had been turned away because it ‘was too crowded’. “I can’t go to Sunday School,” she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by. Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and, taking her by the hand, took her

Stardust in your Crown

Though I never met the woman

Who was called suddenly by our Lord,

I think from what I knew of her,

She journeyed heavenward.

A short while back, she phoned me

About something on her wall;

It was something I had written

And it prompted her to call

To tell me she enjoyed it

Charity without Wisdom

I’m going to tell you about my generous, Christian, do-gooder cousin because you may learn something from her example. She is in fact the most generous, selfless person I have ever known, but she is not always too discerning about who she should do good things for.  Over the years she has opened her

We lived in a four room

Shelter

I was hungry, and you formed a humanities group to discuss my hunger.

I was imprisoned, and you crept off to your chapel and prayed for my released.

I was naked, and in your mind you debate the morality of my appearance.

I was sick, and you knelt and thanked God for your health.

Anonymous Flowers

Some flowers came for me today

With no name on the card;

I couldn’t think who they’d come from

Though I thought very hard.

It sure was nice of someone

To send a floral gift;

I don’t know who I ought to thank,

But they sure gave me a lift.

Christian Generosity

My aunt and uncle were the two most generous people I have ever known.  They not only gave to their church far beyond their tithe amount, they gave to many charitable organizations on a regular basis—so many in fact that the IRS refused to believe that at their income level they could possibly be
