A story is told of a man, who was with family challenges but he couldn’t find anyone to share the problems with, hence he was been eaten by the challenge daily. One day he met some researchers who were making finding about violence at home and he took one the researchers phone number. After several weeks, at about 12am, the phone of the researcher rung twice, lo and behold it was the man from the field research work.
They booked an appointment and when they met, he narrated his family challenges and the researcher prayed with him… and I believe he was filled with appreciation..
Another story is told of a man, who his diligence has earned him a name and love from all. This man is said to be so caring that his strengths are in intercessory prayers. Each day he prays for at least one family and each week he calls and visits at least 3 families… his absence I believe is felt by so many.
With the book of Philippians 2:4 in our hearts
Look not every man on his own things, but every man on the things of others.
Does your neighbor see the reason to confide in you and seek advice?
Does your colleague know how helpful you can be?
Does the brother or the sister sitting next to you see the need to ask you questions which are life challenging and changing?
Does your family member see the need to approach you when worried?
What kind of garment are you currently putting on?
A famous song writer once said
Heal the world
Make a better place
For me and for you
And the entire human race
There are people dying
If you care enough for the living,
Make it a better place for you and for me.
Is the church Home?
God bless you.
