You are surrounded by the poor and needy. The rich executive who seems to have life all together has an impoverished soul. The homeless man on the street has nowhere to turn because of mistakes he made, sins he or others committed, metal illness, or a life full of circumstances he cannot control.
The poor and needy need you to help them. This does not mean you live their life for them or do for them what they can do for themselves. What helping the needy does mean is that you let them know you care and that you are there to help them step up and be stronger.
Most of the poor and needy want out of their circumstances and are willing to work to get out. Even when you help others and they take advantage of you, you have still made an impact upon them. Even when you help and others do not express appreciation, your help is still a help and their appreciation should not be wanted or expected by you. Even when you help someone and it seems the help did no good, your effort and your intent still live in the other person’s heart. When you help with humility, you should expect no reward.
When you help with HIS powerful love, in HIS name , HIS love flows into the other person’s life. Seeds planted by you’re helping may remain dormant, but are always there, ready to sprout and grow at a time of the Lord’s choosing.
Enjoy HIS blessings & Relax!
