However he looked like he had seen some HARD times. And I thought, “Hmmm, there are not usually homeless people here.”
As he crossed the road, his eyes were staring at the ground in front of his feet. Then I could see, his face was disfigured. His skin was dark and tough as a leather hide and his bottom-lip was jutting out almost resting on his chin. Oh Lord, this dear man!
When you and I see people who are suffering like this man, it gives us perspective.
But I am not focusing on how much we have to be grateful for. I am asking us to activate love and good deeds at another level in this intense season.
Do what you can do, when you can do it. Don’t miss an opportunity to reveal His love through being more generous, patient and prayerful.
To say, “Thank you,”—“God bless you,”— ‘I’m sorry” or “Please,” more than usual. Let’s level up.
All I could offer the man crossing the street were my prayers. And he may never know about that. But he will receive some blessing from heaven because I have asked God, who rewards intercession, for a display of His goodness to cascade over him.
If you’re sluggish, sad and under the heaviness of this season, do something for someone else. Taking that step is one of the ways to break the inertia off your soul. And blessings bounce back upon you when you sow them in another’s life.
It’s time. The world needs a display of unfailing love. Listen to His still small voice and when you feel His nudge go do something for someone.
In His love and mine,
