A group of ladies here at New Calvary Baptist Church have decided to do something kind for local schools. They are making cookies and delivering them to different places each month to bless a faculty and staff. In addition to giving them a delicious treat, our ladies leave a note of encouragement and appreciation for all the hard work these ladies and gentlemen do in Sumter's schools. Today they took cookies to Alice Drive Elementary School and Cherryvale Elementary School.
Pictured below are just a few of the ladies who are participating in this project. There are plenty of others who gladly lend in a hand in this awesome work. Check out their smiling faces and some of the cookies they are delivering.
Seeing this good ministry project reminds me of a scripture passage. I John 3:18 tells us "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and in truth." The writer is explaining that love is more than lip service. It is a helpful deed that blesses someone.
I can tell you all day long that I love you. And that's ok. But REAL love is when I spring into action and do something that makes a positive impact on your life.
Think about it. There are hungry people to feed, homeless people to shelter, hurting people to comfort, lonely people to befriend, and lost people to evangelize. If we truly care about people like we say we do, we will act on their behalf.
Let's show love in our homes. And then we can demonstrate it in our businesses, churches, and communities. If there's one thing this world needs, it is a lot more love. And we are the ones who can share it!
Many thanks to the New Calvary Cookie Ladies! Y'all are great. I appreciate you reminding us that real love is more than words. It's action.
