Gospel for Asia: How to Become a Blessing to the Needy and the Oppressed
How do you like becoming a blessing to other people? We are living in a world full of crimes, disaster, hunger, and poverty, and most of us are still striving and thinking that the world is not that bad at all. Every individual has his own life to take, but it is our responsibility and obligation as Christians to help our fellowmen. As Christians, we believe in the two greatest commandments, to love God above all else, and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves, so we need to be socially responsible. More than the food we eat, and the water we drink, we need to sustain our spirituality, become an influence to others in a good way like what Jesus did.
We can help others through our simple endeavors rooted with love and care for others. If you’re a student, you can help your classmates by mentoring those who need help in their academics like Math or Science. Whether or not you’re a student leader, you can take part in anti-bullying campaigns with your participation and active membership. Encourage our friends to grow their faith and spirituality with Christ by encouraging them to join religious youth camps and conferences. Encourage your parents and relatives to donate any kind of goods to charities or even hold fund raising for Christmas giveaways for the poor.
Adult Christians can be a blessing to the needy and the oppressed by taking part with charity works, participating in volunteer work, or serving your religious congregation. There are countless ways to become a blessing to other people, to your employees or with your colleagues by reading the bible or gospel reading on your break or lunch time, sharing your religious views or insights, sending inspirational quotes on their emails, and asking them how is their day so far. A simple smile on your face or saying “hi” and “hello” can make a difference in someone else’s life. Patronize your own local goods to help business owners and employees in your area rather than buying imported goods. Since social media is really in demand right now, use it for the betterment of all by sharing gospel readings, posting inspirational quotes, and other inspiring stories.
