Church has 2nd giveaway at park

By Dottie Dewberry For the WPT

MABEN — Members of Maben First Baptist Church took the opportunity to help those who need a helping hand at the second free giveaway in the W.O. Shivers Park pavilion on April 26.

Citizens were free to take clothing for their children, furniture for their homes, pictures, and a whole array of donated items with no cost at all to those who could use the items.

On the last day, Jesus will say to those on his right hand, “Come, enter the Kingdom. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was sick and you visited me.”

Then Jesus will turn to those on his left hand and say, “Depart from me because I was hungry and you did not feed me, I was thirsty and you did not give me to drink, I was sick and you did not visit me.”

These will ask him, “When did we see you hungry, or thirsty or sick and did not come to your help?” And Jesus will answer them, “Whatever you neglected to do unto one of these least of these, you neglected to do unto me!”

We, as Christians, should not neglect these instructions.

The members of the First Baptist Church are to be commended for these efforts to give to the community.
