My Daily Devotional


Help Someone

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
Acts 20:35

Did you know that helping others is not an option for you, but is a command from God? Throughout the Old and New Testament there are dozens of passages, where God is telling us to help others. Jesus even goes further and tells us that His greatest commandment is to love others as we love ourselves. It is so easy in this selfish, self-centered world in which we live, to focus on ourselves, to the extent that we neglect the hurts and needs of others. The parable of the Good Samaritan, is an example Jesus used to demonstrate that people will walk by someone in need and not even see them, or stop to help. We see in this example that the people who did not stop to help were condemned, but the man who stopped to help, was blessed for what He did. I want you to take seriously what God commands you to do, and be a blessing to someone. God has put people around you that you can reach out to. The people where you work, your classmates, your friends, your family, even the people in your neighborhood are in your life for a reason. You can reach out to these people with a smile and a gesture of friendship. Offer them a word of encouragement, or do a good deed for them, to let them know they are not alone, and that Jesus loves them. Think about someone in your life that could use a little daily encouragement to deal with a problem they may be facing, and help them. Take this responsibility very seriously and help someone today.
