Giving Help

December 6, 2009

Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes or daily food.  If one of you says to him, “go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?  In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:15

Lord in this holiday season, help us to be truly compassionate to those in need.  Help us to fill our food banks, to be generous in donations of gifts and money, and to provide the support of company and friendship.  Help us to give the message of hope.  Help our leaders to find, and us to support, policies and programs that put people back to work and keep them fed.  Help us to shine the light of your mercy “on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death [and] guide our feet into the path of peace.” Luke 1:79
