Since there will never cease to be some need on the earth, I therefore command you, “Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land.”
“When the Advocate comes whom I will send to you from the Father, The Spirit of truth who comes from the Father, he will testify on my behalf.”
He said to them, “When I sent you out without a purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?”
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.

attempt to related the two (as I do in my daily quote and blog entries) and
yet, sometimes that will happen, for as we know God works in mysterious ways.
