1 John 3:17
If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?
Pastor Jen has been sharing this sentiment with us through the Advent study and in her Advent sermons. If we recognize and live our lives seeped in the love of Christ, we will not turn away from someone in need. The difficulty I have, and maybe others have it, is knowing what to do which will make a difference. There is so much need, it is overwhelming. How do we pick and choose who we help? Or, maybe we are not to pick and choose. Maybe God puts opportunities in our path, and we need to pay attention to see them?
Holy Father, help me to see opportunities to show your love to others. Put opportunities in my path, I humbly ask. I do not want to turn my back; help me to see what I am to do. Amen
