Have You Ever

I apologize for not blogging as much lately and i will rectify that in the coming days. Lack of time and sickness have become steady companions of mine.

(This is from a journal entry dated the morning of July 2009)

Have you ever....

Put out your hand to help someone who has fallen?

Given someone something to drink when they were thirsty?
Given someone food when they were hungry?

Prayed for someone on the street and given a word of encouragement along with some of your time?

Stopped to think how much better off the next person may be if....?

A compassionate heart, a helping hand and a gentle word can restore a person's confidence in mankind and hope within themselves.

Jesus was all of these and so much more. We too need to be so much more than ourselves.
