May our hearts be inspired to reach out to those on the margins.

Psalm 72:12-13

For he rescues the poor when they cry out, the oppressed who have no one to help. He shows pity to the needy and the poor and saves the lives of the poor.

Jesus didn’t sit in the temple all day waiting for those in need to come to him.

As a matter of fact, it doesn’t appear Jesus spent all that much time in the temple.

He was out and about…to “seek and save what was lost” (Luke 19:10).

Jesus was God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion personified.

He showed us how to live.

And scripture shows us that Jesus repeatedly asked those who were listening to him…to follow him.

That means you…if you consider yourself a Christian.

How are you following him?

How will the poor be shown mercy and their lives be saved in this time and place…if not for you and me?
