MORNING PRAYERS, Thursday, April 9, 2020 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: IT'S IN US
Father God, please forgive me if ever I have been more concerned about me when I should have been concerned about my brother. I'm sorry. Amen
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." Philippians 2:4
"A person's most useful asset is not a full bank account or a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love and a hand willing to help others.” Prior to the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, this country was so divided it was sad and frightening. What I have always admired about being an American is that people really do help people when they are down and out. That is the way God intended it but the division had moved us away from there. Look at us now. We don't care about party affiliations, status or anything else because this virus does not care. We are in this thing together. We are helping our neighbor. We are praying for our neighbors. It does not matter who you will vote for, how much money you have in the bank or your status in life. The basic humanity in all of us has risen to the top and we are moving back to what God expected of us from the beginning. Remember when Cain killed his brother Abel and God asked "Where is your brother?" His response was, "I'm not my brother's keeper." Well, he was wrong. We are our brother's keep. We are put here to help one another, pray for one another, and encourage one another. We are the Good Samaritans, not the ones who walk by on the other side. It's in us. Every last one of us.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
