Part of the Little Flock
"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to charity; make yourselves money belts which do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near nor moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Luke 12: 32-33When I read this verse today, instead of hearing the guilt-inducing voice inside me saying 'but, I can't do that', I heard the tender voice of a Shepherd, referring to me as part of the little flock, and begging me to go further in. Tender.
