Lord, as the temperature begins to drop and I see the multitude of homeless people on the streets I thinks of the scripture that says, “When I was naked you clothed me. When I was hungry you feed me and when I was in prison you visited me.” I realize that we, the majority of so-called Christians, have really fallen short of our jobs.
It’s not the government that is supposed to take care of our brothers and sisters; it’s us. Those who say we are in the body of Christ. We who say we have a relationship with you are responsible for the care of those that are lost, society’s least and people who are considered less than. Forgive us for not caring enough for our brothers and sisters to feed, clothe and visit them in their time of need.
Help us reach them, teach them skills and help them become productive members of society. Help us to take care of the widows and orphans not just during the Christmas season, but all year long. Help us to reach out to others in our communities who are helping people and join them in their efforts. Help us to help up, not just help out. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
James 2:14 – 17
