“By His words and His example, Jesus taught us to reach out to people in need. If we preach only the spiritual side of the gospel and fail to live out the compassionate side of the gospel, then we become like the Levite and the Pharisee in the parable of the Good Samaritan (see Luke 10:33), passing by human suffering with a shrug of indifference.”
from “Friend of God, the Legacy of Abraham, Man of Faith” by Ray C. Stedman

We are called upon not just to think on God, but to act in His kingdom, for His children. I thought for a long time that my chronic illness made this impossible for me. Those of you who have been sharing my journey know that I found that that is not true.
I invite you to think about how you can act for God, and to put those ideas into place!
