“I don’t want to watch this movie,” she said, “it’s making me uncomfortable.”
Here is an example of where the unfair circumstances of others can make us uncomfortable. It's the seed of Christ’s compassionate heart nudging us to do something about it. We know about hunger and donate to help those in need, but until that moment it was still so very far away for us.
I believe that God pushes us out of our comfort zone to do some major work on our hearts. He can meet us on the couch in our comfortable family room, to teach us a lesson in compassion, gratefulness, and our duty to take care of each other on this earth.
There is no commandment greater than to love each other, and we are living truly free when we are extensions of His love.
We praise You for the stories that You place in front of us...even the ones that make us unconformable and call us to action. Thank You for all those who answer calls to physically go to those far corners of the world to feed the hungry. Keep them physically safe as they travel the globe on Your behalf. For those of us who feel the stir to help around the world and in our own communities, give them strength and compassion. Bless all those who go hungry in this world, and show us what our part is to aid in filling their stomachs with food and their hearts with Christ’s love.
Whether through prayer, finances, or physical presence, show us where our place to extend Your love is. Soften our hearts to those who suffer, and guide us to share the Gospel where hurt and suffering are prevalent. There are so many big things, little things, daily things, that we can do. Help us to operate in Your love, so we don’t miss an opportunity for one.
In Jesus’ Name,
