God's Work, Our Hands!

Dear St. Luke Friends,

Day #4: Wednesday, September 16, 2020

 

God’s Work, Our Hands Week!

Learn, Grow, Serve – Setting Aside an Hour a Day to serve God and our Neighbors!

THEME:

Serving God by Caring for our Immigrant Neighbors in Need

BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY:

Let mutual love continue. 2 Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. 3 Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured. Hebrews 13:1-3

 

Reflection:  I wonder who would be there for me if all of the sudden it was a crime to live as a Christian, and I had to flee to another country to save my life or the lives of my family or friends?  If I landed in Guatemala, or Siberia or Kenya, would someone be moved out of human kindness to make sure I would survive such an ordeal? Or would everyone feel as though they had enough “on their plate” already, consider me a threat to good order, consider me an outsider?  Would I die, as so many have, trying to simply stay alive?

 

LOVE ACTIONS:

Start small, learn more, invest yourself!
