Deanna Whittsett

I was online tonight researching the local missions and I ran across this article about one of my friends who was in my last bible study. My heart is so tender toward this woman and I am so thankful for her witness. She takes her kids (all four of them) down to the Jimmie Hale Mission to serve the homeless (here is the article page 6). One thing Beth Moore talked about in week four of Daniel is the importance of staying humble. She said that when we lose touch with the poor we will inevitably set ourselves up for a fall. I have loved the times where I have been able to go to the homeless shelter and going I received the blessing. Apart from God's grace on my life...where would I be? I don't even want to know.
King Neb was told to renounce his sins and show kindness to the poor and he did not do it...and then you know what happens...he was humbled. This challenges me that I need to get more involved with those who are poverty stricken.
