At Pacifica Christian High School, our FCA student leaders have a passion for serving their community. To this end, the students collected items such as granola bars, wipes, gum, and socks, and assembled “blessing bags” to have on hand when they run into someone in need. Each bag also included a handwritten note of encouragement and was prayed over by our students. Our hope is that these bags provide students with an opportunity to immediately respond to the needs they see around them and serve as a blessing to those who receive them!
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
Then the King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brother and sisters of mine, you did for me.'”
