……….Help!………I’ve fallen and can’t get up.”

"Listen to me........."

“Listen to me………”

HELP….I’ve fallen and can’t get up.   Sound familiar?   As humans, and because we are made in the Image of God, we have an obligation to help our neighbor.  This means…our next door neighbor; the guy around the corner; co-workers; and yes…the BOSS; church members; the homeless; the poor; the hungry; the unemployed; and the overall downtrodden and HELPLESS; and too…..even our Enemies.  (you know…the one’s we secretly HATE).   Be alert to your surroundings, though,  as one doesn’t have to be “down-trodden” to be in deep need of help.  He could be the guy sitting next to us at the morning Staff Meeting.  His daughter could be “in trouble,” or his wife could have just left him (for a younger man – no less).  The Bible does not give us a choice.  Deuteronomy 15:11 –  For there will never cease to be poor in the land.  Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’   We tend to waste our energy looking for reasons to deny one our help; as opposed to looking for ways to help someone.  One day….it could be you or me……needing the helping hand. ……Blessings……cjlb…..8/11/13
