Are you one of the willing

How far are you willing to trust Christ and to help someone?

Christ traveled to the earth below And left behind His throne above; No distance was too great for Him Because He was compelled by love. — Sper

How far are you willing to trust Christ and to help someone?

Think of that woman that was bullied on the bus by the school kids? Would you have traveled across the aisle to stand up to the bullies and help her?

I have. Yes I was scared, but when I took the action, the power of the Holy Spirit came over me. Bullies are cowards. Stand up to them. If they are in a gang, I challenge the leader to a one on one fight. They see the look in my eyes and back down. Have you ever stood up to a bully to protect someone? When you don’t, don’t you feel shame? Now if it is a dangerous situation the best course of action may be to just call the police. Why not carry a can of pepper spray as an added protection?

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice. Proverbs 31:1, 8-9

You are walking down the street to meet a friend for coffee. Someone who is lost comes up and asks you for directions. You know the place they are looking for is in the other direction. Would you go with them in the other direction to make sure they got there? I have on numerous times. It was a lot of fun actually.

A kind heart Is a fountain of gladness making everything freshen into smiles. Washington Irving

Think of someone you know who has a family and is poor through no fault of their own (I do not believe in helping lazy welfare bums who are leeches in society. That does not mean everyone on welfare is a leech, but there are many who are. I will not help them. It says in the Bible “If you want to eat work.” Many of them are too lazy). Instead of buying yourself a treat at the store when grocery shopping, would you use that money to buy them food? I have and we ended up having one of the best meals ever when it was shared with gratitude. That is what made the meal so special.

People who won't help others in trouble "because they got into trouble through their own fault" would probably not throw a lifeline to a drowning man until they learned whether he fell in through his own fault or not.
Sydney J. Harris

If someone you know from the nieghbourhood or work or church is in the hospital would you cut their grass on the lawn for them until they recover?

What do you think Jesus would do? You can not live in a bubble and be a Christian. Don’t you think these actions would open up a wonderful opportunity to share Jesus? Isn’t that our great commission to go share Jesus with the world? How’s your duty to Christ doing these days?

No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he had only had good intentions. Margaret Thatcher

You know and added benefit? It makes you feel pretty good while you do it and afterwards as well. Another added benefit is that instead of complaining about how bad your country has become, in one small way you have made it better. I believe God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the angels in Heaven are clapping in a thunderous applause to boot.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17

What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God. Louis Nize

Prayer: Please Jesus Immanuel (God amongst us) guide me to follow the motto “What would Jesus do?” in all my days activities. I ask this in Your wonderful name. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Hi teaches.

      I agree. And, you never know when helping a stranger that stranger might be an angel set to guide you.

      I love doing kind simple little things spontaniously for people. It is a great way to share the riches of the heart.

      I am sure you met some interesting people along the way as well.

      Good for you. You are a great example to your grandchildren.

      Hi Mhatter.

      If your actions towards others is as beautiful as your poetry I am sure Jesus is very happy with you. I am not much of a poetry reader, however some of the ones of yours I have read are true materpieces.

      God bless you.

      You have made me think again, Teacher Joe! It is something that we should strive to do - help strangers and those in need. I have often given directions to people and then ended up walking them there or doing the best I could to help (sometimes draw a map for instance). The good Samaritan is a story that should be posted on every building and corner in America. Voted up.
