Exhortation to Churches and individual Christians for the New Year: find ways in 2022 to invest in your community.
Almost every community has some form of a foster aid ministry, pregnancy center, mentor groups for at-risk children, Child Advocacy Centers, nursing homes, homeless shelters, food banks, as well as many other resources that serve at-risk groups in your community. If you have trouble finding local groups, there are many larger groups (Lifeline for example) that would love any help.
This allows you to serve God, serve your community, it gives the congregation Biblical ministry opportunities, and shows the community around you that your actions match your words (without the selfies).
Remember, our service to the “least of these” is how we are identified at the final judgement. We should fervently strive to live up to that description. Happy New Year! May 2022 be one of service to God.
