Help Others

Life can be difficult. Sometimes we feel that we are alone. We think about the bad things that happen to us. Then we feel hopeless and overwhelmed.
Our Bible Reading today shows us how we can overcome our feelings of loneliness and hopelessness. God said (verse 7a), “I want you to share your food with hungry people. I want you to find poor people that don’t have homes, and I want you to bring them into your own homes. When you see a man that has no clothes — give him your clothes!”
God continues in verse 8a, “If you do these things, your light will begin shining like the light of dawn.” It is good for us to stop looking at ourselves and start helping other people. Then our lives will not be dark and lonely any more. We will share God’s light and goodness with other people.
Focus on other people today. Then “you will call to the Lord, and the Lord will answer you” (verse 9a).
