Mar 12

Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are accepted, loved, and blessed.

1 John 3.17
17 How does God’s love abide in anyone who has the world’s goods and sees a brother or sister in need and yet refuses help?

I don’t think that I know anyone who if aware of a need would not offer help. The key here is awareness. We are often caught up in our own lives, distracted by our own situations. I pray to have my eyes open to the needs of others so that I might have the opportunity to ease their burden.

How aware am I about the needs of those around me?
Do I look for opportunities to care for others?

Pray to God in your own words or perhaps use the prayer below.
Gracious and compassionate God
You loved me so much that
You were willing to suffer and die for me.
Give me a desire to share your compassion and
To participate in Your ministry to those who are suffering.
Amen
