Valley News & Views d!ii!i!i!!i!ili:ii Page 7 May 3rd, 2012 True Christians, that is "born-again", Bible- believing Christians are at a disadvantage when it comes to retaliation, revenge, and feuding with their neighbors. Those who give no thought to God or who are Christian in name only can let their feelings of anger and thoughts of retribution dictate the way they respond. These can express their anger by turning the air blue with swearing and cursing. They can build fences to show their anger or disdain. They can gossip, they can destroy their neighbor's property or reputation. Sinners have many options to which they can turn to get even or to pay back the one who has offended them. Christians, however, are not supposed to employ any of these tools of revenge. They are not even permitted to hate their worst offender. Jesus said that hate in the eyes of our Heavenly Father is the same as murder: "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him" (I John 3:15). How then is a Christian to respond to those who hurt them? It is difficult to answer, because we have to act within the confines of scriptures. such as Romans 12:17, which says, "Recompense no man evil for evil". Verse 18 adds, " much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men". Verse 19 says, "... avenge not yourselves, and finally verse 21 admonishes, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." So what are Christians to do when they are treated poorly or unfairly? We'll find one answer in the same twelfth chapter of Romans. This time verse 20 -"If thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink." In other words retaliate with kindness, compassion, and love. By pastor leroy aufenkamp We recently had a presentation by the Great Plains Food Bank talking about the Mobile Food Pantry. This is an opportunity for anyone that needs help with groceries to receive food baskets. The Mobile Food Pantry will be at the Pembina County Historical Museum, which is about 6 miles west of Cavalier, on Tuesday May 1st from 2:15-3:00 p.m. The Mobile Food Pantry is for everyone-families with children, senior citizens, or anyone experiencing financial difficulty. There is a registration form that must be filled out and brought with you to the Mobile Food Pantry. We have those forms in our office at Pembina County Meals & Transportation (located at the Drayton Senior Citizens Center). You can also go online to www.lssnd. org/GreatPlainsFoo dBank and find the registration form. It is a very short form that asks for name, address, number of children in household, number of adults in household, and number of senior citizens in household. By signing the form you are also certifying that your income meets the Income Guidelines and that you are in need of food assistance. The Income Guidelines for monthly income are: 1 person $1,815; 2 people $2,452; 3 people $3,090; 4 people $3,725; and for each additional family member add $638. If your income is above these guidelines but you have been experiencing unexpected medical bills or other unexpected expenses, you may still be eligible ff you are in need of food assistance. They do not ask for verification. You just need to sign the form and present it when you get there. This is a drive thru food pantry-you drive up to the distribution spot and workers load the food boxes into your vehicle. If someone is not able to travel to the distribution spot because of illness or being homebound, someone else can pick up food baskets for them as long as the homebound person sends a signed registration form. Of course, they encourage everyone to come pick up their own food baskets, but they do realize some people in need are not able to, especially the frail elderly. Pembina County Public Transportation will provide rides to the Mobile Food Pantry on May 1st. There will be a $5.00 charge and we can only take 5 passengers, so if you would like a ride, please call early to reserve a seat, 454-6586.
