Oh Lord, I pray that Your love will begin to fill our lives. There are so many people in need, but only You can break through to people, in order to help them know this is true. The selfishness in their lives is not helping the matter also, but only destroying their ability to serve You with their whole hearts. So do a work in every person's life that says they believe in You, that Your love will be on full display in their lives and others. Surely, people will not ever realize what Your joy is like until they have been in Your service, oh God. I have met way to many people that have said that the Holy Spirit is in not present with them, but how can this be? If these same people would simply be willing to follow You, then doors would start opening up. They would see Your blessings poured out upon their lives, and then want to share these blessings with others. Just as You opened my eyes to the importance of feeding the homeless and caring for their needs, these people that seek You need to know this. Then will more people know that caring for others is necessary, and people that have done Your good works selflessly will have the Holy Spirit with them. As I have encountered the Spirit each week, while showing love towards others, every person in Your church can also be led by You. You did not leave us comfortless but have left the Holy Spirit to lead us on the path of righteousness. Thank You, Lord. I pray that this day and forever, I will continue on this path that You have set for me. I love You, Lord. Helping others is the least I can do as an offering of my heart to serve You. Amen.

2 And there was of the house of Saul a servant whose name was Ziba. And when they had called him unto David, the king said unto him, Art thou Ziba? And he said, Thy servant is he.
3 And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may shew the kindness of God unto him? And Ziba said unto the king, Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his feet.
True love towards others is when God's love is on display. So be charitable to those in need, as God works through You.
I have mentioned charity and kindness today, and will now describe a great example of a person who showed God’s love to an individual. Continue Reading
