“But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, 25 that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it. And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues.” 1 Corinthians 12:24-28
The apostle Paul reminded the church at Corinth that it was one body with different members and they often had different types of gifts by which to meet the needs of the body. As the church in Kingsland, we also have been blessed with a variety of gifts. It is a blessing that the gift of helping is found abundantly among those given to our congregation. There have been many times and ways that God has allowed us to bless others.
The rains in May caused several incidents of flooding which damaged property and claiming several lives. The Hill country town of Wimberley, Texas, about 85 south of Kingsland, was hard hit. The elders looked for what was needed to assist those in Wimberley. Our preacher, Joe Winnett, spoke with the minister of the Wimberley church of Christ to discuss their needs. The church there and most of its members escaped any flood damage. However, one sister-in-Christ (age 73) lost essentially everything she owned. The Wimberley church has been focusing on getting her back on her feet and helping her rebuild. They welcomed any help we could give.
When our congregation was made known of the need, there was a great outpouring of financial contributions. God’s gift of helping was greatly demonstrated. The Highland Lakes church of Christ was able to send the Wimberley church $2500 to help them to the honor of our God. God be praised and we continue to support those in Wimberley in our thoughts and prayers. For the elders, Ken D
