Holiness

I was waiting for Mercy yesterday at Toa Payoh Central, and i saw two very old ladies selling tissues. I bought from them, and as i was standing and looking at the two ladies trying to sell their stuff to the people around them, people just walked off or ignored them. My heart broke when i saw how these two ladies helping each other to sell tissues for maybe $1, and people, obviously, they can afford that $1, did not give any notice to these 2 old folk. I wish i had more to give, like bringing them to a nice meal, and perhaps, organize a trip to the zoo, hire a bus, gather the whole lot of them to bring them out on a nice saturday afternoon with all expenses paid for, their meals, etc with people to talk and spend time with them. Thinking about this, i saw another old lady at Toa Payoh on monday in dirty rags, begging for food, NOT money, and people just walked past this old lady. Almost cried, and went back to look for her so i can bring her for a nice dinner, but i can’t find her after that.

God dropped a note in my heart that two days – Holiness is when we do what pleases God, not just preaching about it, or talking about it. What pleases the Lord – putting Him first, then we must care for the poor, widowed, and the orphans. How many Christians today are doing that? They are more skeptical about these people being in a syndicate than to really care. I realized, one of the key things to realize the call of a person, is what moves the person to care – for me, is to teach, and to care for the poor, and old folk. I want to be able to bring some joy and definitely pointing them to Jesus so at the end of their lives, they will know that there is a God who loves and cares for them.  I think, this is what holiness is all about.

Matthew 6:1
[ Giving to the Needy ] “Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
