Whenever We Reach Out
“Everywhere you look, people are being affected by crime, poverty, sickness, loneliness, and bereavement. It can seem like we’re swimming in an ocean of tears. And then we turn on the evening news to hear the latest horror from Bosnia or Rwanda or wherever it is that people have friends. Like I said, sometimes the problems in this world just seem too big to face.
But God doesn’t expect you and me to solve all of the world’s problems. He simply expects us to make a difference wherever and however we can—one person at a time. Whenever we reach out to someone less fortunate, to one of the people that Scripture terms ‘the least of these,’ we are really reaching out to Him.”
