It is so easy to sit in our comfortable homes and do nothing. The people that need help can be so unappealing. They may be dirty and homeless. We may feel that if we give them money they will spend it on alcohol so we don’t help. but Jesus didn’t ask us to judge the situation. He said we should help no matter what. Even the unlovely. If you don’t want to give money carry snack crackers in your car or a toothbrush and toothpaste. We can always do something!
Forgiving God, take away our anxiousness about helping others. Let us be like the good Samaritan and willing to go the extra mile. AMEN
