HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-Dec. 10, 2016-THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN
Compiled by Holy Heretic Connie Foster
“There is a lot that happens around the world that we cannot control We cannot stop earthquakes, we cannot prevent droughts, and we cannot prevent all conflict but when we know where the hungry, the homeless and the sick exist then we can help.”–Jan Schakowsky
There are so many things in this life that are beyond our control, our hands are tied. No matter how much we want to help. Yet there isso much we can can do — tat we have even been commanded to do. Jesus tells us that we are one body in Christ. Everyone: rich, poor, every race, every age, has a role to play in that body. So many people ignore the homeless, partly because they believe there is little they can do to “fix” them. And they are absolutely right. In fact it is not God’s intentions that we “fix” them any more than it is God’s intention that they “fix” us. We may go to a homeless camp, or an orphanage or a rest home with the intention of helping someone else, but ultimately we will be helping ourselves.
Today’s Action: At this special time of the year, think about what you could do to help the homeless and go a little further than you think you can.
Today’s Sharing: We would love to hear what you did to help the homeless and if you plan to continue. Share your stories on our Facebook page at facebook.com/holyhereticzine
