Sewing and Sowing… 29MAR
If there are folks who ask for help – we are to help. This is how we show our example. “Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” Matthew 5: 42
Regardless of perceived effectiveness of homemade masks, I know that medical servants are clamoring for them. I know of sew-many sewers are now stitching away in “Mask-production” “Mass-production”… It is inspiriting to see the good come out of the bad – it is an important comfort that we can help to give others – and with every stitch we can place prayers and HOPE… So it’s time to SEW and SOW… SEW stitches and SOW seeds of HOPE…
And now to enter in public, people are being asked to cover their faces so that we don’t spread seeds of sickness. We can keep sewing and supplying their needs – what a great way to just give of our selves and our time… surely we can give from our excesses for successes in preventing the spread of disease.
1st Peter 2:13-14 Submission to Authority – Be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good.
Romans 13:5-6 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.
