Reflection of the Week - 28 August 2019
Posted in Faith
Lord, there is so much human need around us,
It's tempting to withdraw into our cave
And let it all pass by.
'I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in... ...Whatever you did for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, You did for me.' Matthew 25:35,40
Jesus, imprint on my heart
That whatever I do for others, I do for you,
And whatever I don't do for others,
I don't do for you.
Lord, give me the grace to be willing
To pay the price of truly loving people,
Of making the sacrifices in time and energy.
Give me your heart,
So that you can love through me.
