"Blessed to Be a Blessing"- This is an ACT of Kingdom Principles.

From time to time I like to show movie trailers or music videos of my favorite artist, but this time I would like to share an act of kindness. This act of kindness is not something new. It was practiced in the early church. The book of Acts talks about how the assembly of born again Christians would come together and give to those in need. The widows, orphans and the poor. They would sale whatever they had and give to those who had a greater need. No one had more than the other. Acts 2:44,45
This church "Valley Kingdom" is a prime example of a practice that needs to be put back into action in all of our churches. Feeding the homeless and giving out rations from the benevolent fund is not good enough. If you have tithe paying members in the congregation, then it is your responsibility to make sure that every member has their needs met. No hand me downs either. Give them the best, because God gives you the best. Set out a basket in front of the sanctuary for people to give every week, better yet take up and offering and let those who are in need take what need from the basket. It is amazing how one dollar can add up when you have a membership of five thousand. It is time for us to step up and not allow the government to be our source, but to give what our heavenly Father has blessed us to give. He made sure your needs are met; now it's time for you to make sure others are met too. For it says in Luke 6:38 Give, and [gifts] will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour into [the pouch formed by] the bosom [of your robe and used as a bag]. For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you. Amplified Bible
This testimony should not be so unusual; it should be the norm among born again believers. God wants to shine through us not around us. He wants to show the children of darkness who he is through the children of light. So let us come together and be a blessing to one another as this assembly was a blessing to this young woman and her family.

This ministry has blessed the Kingdom of God through word and song. They also have a praise and worship group "Shekinah Glory" that will usher you into His Majesty's Presence.
