Helpers Of The Needy Are Always Needed

Words In Season:

God knows that helpers of the needy are always needed, so He keeps them alive.
          Abridged & adopted.


"Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and alms deed which she did...........
Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him to the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and showing the coats and garments which Dorcas has made, while she was with them........
....and when he had called the the saints and widows, presented her alive"
                                              Acts 9:36 - 41


We may have lost Rochas Okorocha to politics. But we are all aware of his philanthropic activities in his pre - political days. I was privileged to be in the premises of Rochas International College, Jos in year 2010. One of his a secondary schools across the nation, where indigent students are educated free of charge.
The cord I want to strike here is that Rochas narrowly missed and I mean narrowly missed the crashed Bellview plane in year 2005, by whiskers.
Are we saying that those who perished in that aircraft are not philanthropic enough? When I get home in Heaven, I will ask God.
All we know is that like Dorcas, God has a way of stepping in to keep alive those whose made their lives count to others. Several promises of God in His Holy Book attested to this. 
Knowing that they will still be needed alive to continue to make their lives count for the good and well being of others.
All we are saying here is, let your life count to God's Kingdom and to humanity with whatever resources and skills God blessed you with. Be not a hoarder, but be a distributor and a good steward of His resources. Be not weary in well doing. It affects both your life and the lives of others you do it to for good. Of course it put smiles on their faces, wipe away their tears, lift burdens off their hearts.
At the same time such good deeds in return preserve the life of you the doer and prolong your days; among several other rewards.
We have been hearing it said over and over again that we are blessed to be a blessing. God did not only promise to bless Abraham but He also promised to make Abraham a blessing to all nations. Which He did.
Therefore keep flowing to others and the flow will never cease, and you will keep flowing. As long as the late prophet's widow kept pouring on the instruction of EliSHA, the oil did not cease but kept flowing, until she ran out of vessels. 
But you need to start somewhere. And that somewhere is where you allow God's grace to flow into your heart first.
That grace of God that has appeared to all men, charging them to deny all ungodliness and lusts.
You've got to open the door of your heart to Jesus today, The Custodian of that grace, Who has has all these years been knocking, and let Him in.
