We hope everyone has a blessed Father's Day weekend. Many families will gather together and enjoy a big meal and perhaps some fun in the sun, weather permitting. While you are enjoying it, would you consider those less fortunate than you that perhaps don't have a father in the home?
We see so many single parents; while most are mothers, some are fathers. Most of them all work hard to provide for their families, but they just can't make ends meet. For the men especially, but some of the women as well, it hurts their pride to admit they need help. They can lay down their pride; there's no judgment here. We all need help sometimes, in one way or another, and that's why we're here.
God has called us to feed the world one soul at a time... in other words, to feed every person, every family, that God brings to our door, as well as sending food to other ministries and organizations to help reach people beyond our community. In addition, He has commanded us to show them the love of God in the process. You know the old saying, "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." When people can feel the love and acceptance, it takes the sting out of the pride that would try to make them feel bad for asking for help.
So in honor of fathers this week, and (for those of faith) to honor Father God, would you consider making a donation to Joseph's Storehouse to help us help the less fortunate? You'll be glad you did. It truly is a blessing to be able to give to others.
"Inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these My brethren, you have done it unto Me."
