Beau's Sunday Sermon -- Charity and Family

"And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you...Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels." (Ephesians 4:32; Hebrews 13:2 NKJV) Charity begins at home. It is where we learn how to be in the world and treat one another. But who is our family? Is it just the ones we are related to or is bigger? We are ALL children of God, so we are all one big family. So, it is important that we teach each other how to be kind, loving, and charitable to ourselves, to each other, and to others. It also begins with one. You are one and if each one is more charitable, than the world would become a better place. There is a saying, "Try random acts of kindness," which is a great idea. I encourage everyone reading this to try random acts of kindess every day this week and see what happens. If you don't know where to start read The Holy Bible. It has LOTS of examples of acts of kindness toward friends, family, and even perfect strangers. Who might be entertaining an angel unaware! Love, Beau
