Go Forth

Each of us is being called to be compassion to all.

Luke 10:1-2

After this the Lord appointed seventy[-two] others whom he sent ahead of him in pairs to every town and place he intended to visit. He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”

Jesus obviously wanted his followers to not just passively listen to him but to go out and actively take his message to others.

He sent many…and in pairs.

So it would seem Jesus knew the importance of having a helping hand and to not be a lone ranger.

Jesus also knew that many people were primed to hear his saving message that…despite what they might feel like and despite the oppression they might be under…that God loved them unconditionally and that they didn’t have to do anything to earn God’s love.

God sent his followers to uplift the downtrodden and to heal the broken…not to condemn them or lay heavy burdens upon them.

Christ is still calling laborers…including you.

First…hear that you are God’s beloved child and are accepted just as you are.

Now…go and let others know as well.
