Christian Charity



Greetings in the love and grace of ou Lord Jesus Christ! As come together in worship, let us reflect on the profound importance of Christian charity in our lives. 

Christian charity extends beyond mere acts of kindness; it embodies the selfless love and compassion that Christ exemplified during His time on Earth. In giving to others, we emulate His boundless generosity and reflect the transformation power of love. 

The apostle Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians 13:3, "If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing." These words underscore that true Christian charity is not solely about the action but is deeply rooted in love and genuine concern of others. 

Our acts of charity, whether small of large, contribute to the well-being of our community and bear witness to the love of Christ. As we strive to live out this calling, let us remember that charity is not confined to material giving but extends to the giving of our time, empathy, and understanding.

May our hearts be open to the needs to those around us and may our actions be guided by the love of Christ. Let us be a beacon of Christian charity, illuminating the path of hope and compassion for all. 

In His Love, 

Fr. Matt Humerickhouse.
