Responding to a Different Kind of Help Wanted

This week we find ourselves in a position to minister to some others who are in challenging circumstances and ensnared by sin.

Not a comfortable position to be in.

Helping someone and counseling them in truth and love sounds good, until a live person shows up in life.

Getting up from the La-Z-Boy of life to walk with someone through the valley doesn't sound like a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Isn't Sunday afternoon supposed to be family time, anyway? A day of rest?

Yet, when it is time to sit down and think about it, the decision is clear. The way I see it, anybody can fall into a hole without anybody's help, but few people climb out on their own. So, we are called to come along side.

Later, I'll be glad I did.

    May this be a blessing to both you and those whom you have the opportunity to minister.
