IN READY HELP FOR ALL

Thought for today:

IN READY HELP FOR ALL

Come children let us go
We travel hand in hand
In this wild stranger land,
The strong be quick to raise
The weaker when they fall;
Let love and peace and patience
bloom
In ready help for all.

– G. Tersteegen

This world can be a paradise if each decides to be his brother’s keeper; to love him as himself; to be able, like the Good Samaritan who, full of compassion, gave of his time, his convenience (his donkey), and his meagre purse to help a brother in need, while others, who profess to serve God, pass him by. Our Lord tells us; if we do not love our neighbour whom we see, how can we love God whom we do not see.

What is happening in the world is the result of not giving but taking, and taking until it hurts and deprives another. Wealth hoarded and not shared is like fertile land overcome with stinking weeds. Give and it will be given unto you – good measure pressed down, shaken together and running over will they pour into your lap. Luke 6:38. The present economic crisis is the result of our not being our brother’s keeper. Nations are spending enormous sums of money on weapons to destroy his brother instead of spending it on tools to help him to survive. But what they are doing is plotting their own destruction. No matter how you try to make it, your enemy is your brother; you can make him your friend by showing him kindness and love.
