Pause

Stop for a moment. Lift your eyes. Become aware of the needs around you.

Who are your neighbors? How might you share your life with them this week?

Listen

The Lord is righteous in all his ways, faithful in all his deeds. The Lord is close to everyone who calls out to him, to all who call out to him sincerely.

Psalm 145:17-18

Think

I don’t think we can ever hear it enough: God is righteous and faithful. I’m grateful that God is righteous and faithful no matter how many times I get it wrong. We get to trust our loving God to bring about good in the world despite all the times we mess up. The Psalmist also reminds us that God is always near to us.

But it is not enough to sit back and wait for God to do the work and to bring about good in the world. I see this as an invitation to join hands and move forward in the direction of love. God invites us to embrace our neighbors – the ones we know and the ones we do not know. We’re invited to be a part of God’s life-giving work in the world.

Will you accept the invitation?
