A Thought: The Background.
When our church had a fire drill last month, the one thing which startled us in the training beforehand, was those of us on staff couldn’t recall exactly where all the fire extinguishers or pull alarms were. They had become a part of the background—we passed them in the hallways everyday, but didn’t SEE them. Do we find ourselves doing the same thing with people? We say hello and go on about our business, but do we see their need or notice their frame of mind? Jesus always focused on the hearts and needs of those around Him and then, ministered to them. May we have the compassion and wisdom to do the same!
Lk.21:1-2 “Jesus looked up and saw the poor widow put in two small coins–all she had.”
