“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” (1 John 3:16-17)
I had this printed on my cheque books, so that every time I wrote a cheque I would be reminded. This is the standard we are measured with. If we love God, we will love others and that is expressed in us meeting their needs. Physical, actual, material needs. Where does God want you to express this today. If you pray this prayer expect to have your eyes opened. It is a dangerous one!
Quick Prayer. “Give me the opportunity to meet a need today.” Amen
