The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40 NIV
How many individuals have you helped this week? As we prepare for the incoming Sabbath, we should take the time to reflect on who we have served this week. It is our purpose to bring the sunshine of love and hope to those who are hungry, sick, lonely, and without the resources to take care of themselves and their families.
We are servants of the Most High God, our lives are not our own; our purpose has been pre-determined and it is to serve, serve, serve.
Challenge for today: Visit someone who is homebound, hospitalized or in a nursing home this weekend.
Prayer for today: Dear God, Please forgive me for not fulfulling my purpose by serving others. It is my desire to seek out those who need to know you. Thank you for your love, your grace, and mercy. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
