Active Assistance

Today's reading: 2 Kings 4:1-7

Sometimes the best way for us to respond to someone in need is to simply pray. But there are many times when taking action (paired with prayer) is really what a person in distress needs. That's what we see with Elisha and the prophet's widow. Confronted with a plea for help from this desperate widow, Elisha listens to her request and then takes action which helps her get out of debt and provide for her family.

There are people in need all around us. So who in your church, school, workplace, neighborhood or family needs help? In addition to prayer, what action can you take to help a person in need this Thanksgiving and Christmas season? Tami

Our church distributes baskets with a full thanksgiving and Christmas dinner to several families during those respective holiday weeks, as well as buying Christmas gifts for one family with small children. It's not much, but it does help some people.

I took some money out of an account to help a family of a friend. Our church is helping some families. I thank the Lord I can help.

I hope you'll join in the conversation as we read the Bible and grow together.
