Father, during this season of love, joy and peace, please help me to remember those who need to know your love in their lives through the touch of my hands.
I need to touch people who are confined to their beds of affliction in their homes, in convalescent homes, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. Father, they need to know your love through me. Help me seek out and help people in homeless shelters, people who need to eat in community kitchens, and those whose only source of food is a local food pantry.
Father, you said it is my responsibility to go out and find those who are in need and show them the love of Christ. Help me, Lord, to come out of my selfishness and reach out to those in need and give them the real meaning of the season: your love through Jesus Christ.
Let me not think about how they can return my kindness, but allow me to do for them knowing they can’t return anything to me. Help me not to do it just for this month, or the next few weeks, but help me keep this spirit of giving all year long.
Help me, Lord, to be selfless like Christ, for this is the real reason for the season.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Matthew 25:34 – 40
