I imagine we’ve all had those moments when the Lord was stirring our hearts to help a co-worker or neighbor with words of encouragement or with actual hands-on efforts such as a move across town, a household repair or with babysitting at a last-minute notice.

But for some reason that doesn’t equate with faithfulness, we didn’t do what our consciences wanted us to do.

We can do better.

When His voice is calling us to be His people to others who would be blessed by our help, let’s get at it.

If we have to lay aside our agendas for a brief time, then that is an offering of humble faith.

God will be pleased and our co-worker or neighbor will be both helped and instructed as to the goodness of Christianity.

Here is Solomon’s take on the importance of helping others.

“If you can help your neighbor now, don’t say, ‘Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.’” (Proverbs 3:28)

The Holy Spirit doesn’t waste His spiritual breath speaking to us for no good reason.

Whenever you hear His voice directing you to help somebody, then please get to it.

If we’re not hearing His voice calling us to help others, then we have a big problem.

It’s called selfishness and perhaps it has gotten so bad that God has given up on us as vessels of kindness.

Let’s be sensitive to His voice. Others will find our faith to be much more evident and relevant.

And that can only lead to good things for us.

As always, I love you
