Share God's Love Over A $5 Meal

I live close to the bridge bordering USA/Mexico and I often go across to Mexico to shop. I always take something to share like Christian tracts, bibles, toys, clothes, and school supplies. 

 

Recently my neighbor and I made a quick trip to Mexico to buy pet medicine and did not pack anything to give out. It was around four in the afternoon and we were on our way back when a young teenage boy approached us and asked for money to buy food. I ignored his plea and walked on.  He followed us and again he repeated his request.  I suddenly stopped and told him I would buy him a meal at the Taco Stand across the street. He agreed. [sometimes they just want the money.] I ordered three tacos and a soft drink.

 

While his order was being prepared, I asked if he attended church and he said, "sometimes". I told him about God's love for him and salvation through Jesus Christ.

 

His meal was served. I prayed for him, for the food and the person who prepared it. He thanked me and said, "God bless you." As I walked away this bible verse came to mind: 

 

"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink...Matthew 25:35. I thank the Lord for the opportunity to share God's love over a $5.00 meal.


"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty

and you gave me something to drink…” Matt. 25:35
