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? 1 John 3:17 (NRSV)
For most of us coming off of Christmas, how could we say we did not have enough and more? We have the world’s goods and then some.
People around us are not as lucky. We may not see them because we stay in safe circles of work, home and play. But they are there. They are in need.
This year, put a face on somebodies not related to you who are in need…and help. You can do it. God is with you (remember “Emmanuel” from Christmas Eve service.)
God is sending you into their lives as a lifeline, an answer to prayer. Do not deny them.
