St. John of Kronstadt on sharing what the Lord has given to us.
When people think of their New Year’s resolutions, they often think of things they need to stop doing: They need to go on a diet, quit smoking…things like that. But here’s something you can add to your life: imitating God by being generous with others.
St. John of Kronstadt says, “Look at all the earth supplies in summer and in autumn! Every Christian, especially the priest, ought to imitate God’s bountifulness. Let your table be open to everybody, like the table of the Lord.”
God has blessed us with many things: use the New Year to start sharing them with others.
"Thank you for AFR's ministry to those of us who live in remote areas. My husband and I live in the far north of Scotland, and AFR is a lifeline for me as an American and for my husband, who as a Scotsman had never heard this kind of programing nor realized how vital the faith is to many of us in America. In the UK, it is so far marginalized as to be almost non-existent in spite of wonderful people like Met. Kallistos Ware."
