This blog post was a godly and timely reminder to me of how people in other nations are being badly impacted and suffering, not just through the COVID pandemic, but because of other injustices, corruption and disasters which have affected them. We, as Christians, are one body in Christ and when one part of our body suffers then we too suffer with them. Let us be awake to the sufferings of others around the world and ask the Lord to show us the ways that we can help practically and support people in need. Letting them know that we are with them in their sufferings.
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

Thank you very much for this, Celia.
Let me translate to you what is written below the “Maginhawa Community Pantry”*:
“Give/Share according to one’s ability,
Take only what is needed.”
The one below says:
“Free sweet potatoes
from farmers of Paniqui, Tarlac.”
God bless you more!
*Maginhawa means “comfortable”; it is the name of a street.
