You compare God and concern with our souls with a miscellaneous act of kindness you performed in a fast food emporium upon an elderly woman? Seriously?<quoted text>
God is more concern about the health of our soul than our bodies. How long is eternity as compared to our time on Earth? It is not important how long you live but how well you live.
How often do you do random acts of kindness? To me, charity is more personal like stopping to mount someone's spare tire or take them to a hospital.
On my 60th birthday I was having breakfast at a .Cracker Barrel when an elderly woman fainted and cracked her head on the floor. I had been dating my nurse girl friend only about two months at the time and impressed her very much.
At the end, I road with the other elderly woman in her car to the hospital as her friend took te ambulance ride and my girlfriend drove my car. I stayed with them until noon and the woman was checked out and her cut stitched and they were able to get back on the road. Sooooo I had my birthday breakfast out of a vending machine! No big deal. I hope someone would do that for my mother if the situation occurred.
This is not the first time you tell us about your "good deeds" upon fellow human beings. This implies that you're practically unique in your compassion for your neighbour, and that few would be as charitable, as forthcoming. Think again, the good Samaritan, the real one, doesn't shout his good deed over the rooftops or on Topix.
If God's concern over our souls trumps that of our bodies, why are some "bodies" so much better off that the other 2/3 on this globe, yet, each with an equal chance of going to heaven? If that be the case, Rogue, why don't you divest yourself immediately of your savings, investments, house, car, aeroplane, pension, guaranteed health care and do the St. Augustine thing and give all of it tot the poor? After all, these are all worldly "body" things. Yes, donate them all to the poor, as Jesus preached, and you'll see, you'll feel much better and heaven will be that much closer.
