Thanksgiving on the Street

I am on Bob Lupton's mailing list and just received his November "Urban Perspectives" newsletter. He is such a great writer. This one is about two homeless guys conversing on the street. Their impressions about the attitudes of people who they met panhandling reminded me of what I heard at River City Community Church from Pastor Dan Hill on Sunday. He spoke from 1 Corinthians 13:3-4 to the point that we can do very good things for the wrong reasons. Without love it is nothing.
"If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames , but have not love, I gain nothing."
I went forward for prayer for a heart transfusion. I need to be more loving.
