HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-Nov. 12, 2016-I WAS IN PRISON AND YOU VISITED ME
Compiled by Holy Heretic Connie Foster
“Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners and those who are mistreated as you yourself were suffering.” –Hebrews 13:3
We are commanded to have as much devotion for those in prison as if the captivity were our own. We are to share in the suffering of others. This is not speaking of just prayer, which are always needs, but visiting those in prison, taking gifts to cheer them up, visiting their family to help them get through this difficult time. You may be the only light during this dark time.
Action: Visit a family of someone incarcerated or the one incarcerated. Ask them what you can do to help the most while they or their family member is imprisoned. If you don’t know someone in jail, look for other ways in which you can support those who are incarcerated or their loved ones. A simple google search will reveal letter writing campaigns and more.
Sharing: Did you visit a prisoner or their loved ones? Did you take some other type of action to support someone who is incarcerated or their families? Share your stories on our Facebook page at facebook.com/holyhereticzine
