Today's Scripture: "If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me." Jn 10:37
5816. Being prepared means having enough to help someone else. JG
Wish I was wrong
A week ago the people of Houston, Texas were concerned about what was for dinner and how the Texas football franchise would fare this year. Then Hurricane Harvey poured historic rains on the city and a week later people are either living in shelters or marooned in their homes without a store of food and supplies. They need someone to risk their lives to rescue them or they may die in their home. Football is no longer a concern, but staying alive in order to start over has become top priority. Some may have been prepared for the disaster but most weren't and many will die a victim of their negligence.
When impressed to serve the church at large, I looked for areas that weren't being addressed. What I found was that church in general has become lukewarm and unphased by coming trouble. Most Christians act like loyalty to church and pastor is their salvation and someone else needs to minister to them. Meanwhile their focus is listening to a sermon and giving to foreign missions when the majority of the congregation is dying spiritually. And the beat goes on. No one prepares for what they believe will never come, but they will blame everyone else for their own lack of preparation.
You've placed us where we need to be, Lord, help us prepare to serve.
