Word Living - The SIA Newsletter

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Proverbs 6:6-8 (NKJV)


Each issue of Word Living looks at Scripture and applies it to everyday living. SIA urges readers to prayerfully meditate on any Scriptural reference featured in our newsletters until the Holy Spirit shows you a way to apply its truth to your own life.


WELCOME TO WORD LIVING
November 2020

We give praise for the opportunity to share the word of God with you.

EVEN IN A PANDEMIC, WE GIVE THANKS FOR…

There are several things to consider and I am sure you will add to this list based on the blessings and opportunities that our Lord has provided.

  1. You are reading this letter, meaning you have eyes to see and your brain is working. You are able to understand what you are reading, spot any errors, and store useful ideas in your brain, the most complex part of the human body, to be used in making decisions now and in the future.

  2. You have an address, which means you have a place to live. The number of people experiencing homelessness per a 2019 HUD Annual Report, was 567,715.

  3. If your family had food to eat, you are blessed. A September 15, 2020, report 29 million American adults do not have enough to eat. This is nearly a threefold increase from two years ago. A report from Lauren Bauer , dated July 9, 2020 noted 14 million children in the United States are not getting enough to eat.

  4. You are reading this letter because you are still blessed by God to be alive. The Covid19 death report as of this writing is, 1,186,464, October 30, 2020 13:56 GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)

  5. If you have recovered from the Corona, praise the Lord. Per the report you are one of 3.5 million, according to John Hopkins University.

  6. As you read, remember you are blessed because you have the ability to do great things today. You can call someone to remind them that someone cares. In time like these many suffer depression and feel hopeless. Ask the Lord to direct you and make that call, send that card, drive by wave, text, or be creative but stay safe.
You are blessed to bless others. Do not focus on what you do not have, focus on what you have. There are many seniors that do not care if you have tune or not. Just sing the words, say a prayer, read a scripture, do a wave by, just care enough to do something because it really matters. We also face unrest. The news is filled with pain and sorrow. Each day I hope for a better report. Yet my heart aches for the many families that have experienced the death of a love one but are unable to have a funeral service as desired or they experienced some form of injustice resulting in death. There are many things that are painful during these times, the increase cost of basic items, the insensitivity of those who are in charge, the many acts of injustice, and the lack of love and respect. Yet I am blessed to do all I can to encourage you to see your opportunity to show God’s love to someone today.

Matthew 25:31-40 (KJV)

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Please read the entire chapter and be blessed.
