When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Sabbath Peace - When Saw We Thee?

Matthew 25:34-40 
“Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
“For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
“Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
“Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
“When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
“Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
May the words of one of my favorite hymns penetrate our very souls and find a place in our hearts:
Have I done any good in the world today? 
Have I helped anyone in need? 
Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad? 
If not, I have failed indeed. 
Has anyone’s burden been lighter today 
Because I was willing to share? 
Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way? 
When they needed my help was I there?
We are surrounded by those who need our hands, our attention, our encouragement, our support and our love.  It doesn't matter if they are family members, friends, or strangers.  We are the Lord's hands here upon the earth.  We are His earthy angels.  
What have I done for someone today?
