VOD 06/23/12: Look Around, And Help Others.

Posted on: June 23, 2012 6:12 am
 
Verse:

Acts 20:35
   I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. (KJV)

Thought:

   What we get for our labors allows us to make a living for ourselves. What we give to those less fortunate allows us to make a life for ourselves and others.  Whenever we help another, they too will help another in their time of need, and so forth. Our Lord Jesus gave His life for our welfare. What He is asking of us is to look around and have compassion for those in need and help lighten their load whenever we possibly can. Remember, He said that whatsoever you do for the least, you do for Him.

Prayer:

Our Heavenly Father,
   Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit make us aware of those around us that need help and instruct us on the best way to come to their aid and ease their burdens. Do not allow us to become so absorbed with ourselves that we overlook the plight of others. Teach us the compassion for others that You so graciously show towards ourselves.
   We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.


Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.

May God Bless,
Michael

"Look around, and help others."  Nice sentiment, Michael.  It needs to happen more often than just in states of emergency, fear and under compulsion.
