    For a righteous man falls seven times, and rises up again; But the wicked are overthrown by calamity. Proverbs 24:16 WEBI felt disgusted with myself because I had tried so hard, but in a moment of weakness returned to my old habits. Now like an injured animal, I just wanted to be left alone. Soon I ...

    Jesus answered him, 'Simon, I have something to tell you.' He said, 'Teacher, say on.' A certain lender had two debtors. The one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. When they couldn't pay, he forgave them both. Which of them therefore will love him most?' Simon answered, 'He, I suppose, ...

    For John the Baptizer came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man, and a drunkard; a friend of tax collectors and sinners!'

Strangers In The Night

  • But he, desiring to justify himself, asked Jesus, 'Who is my neighbor?' Jesus answered, 'A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. Luke 10:29 WEB

    By chance, a priest was walking down a narrow dirt road on his way to Jericho, when he came across a man who had been beaten, robbed, and left for dead. Not wishing to be troubled in his busy day, he simply walked past him on the other side of the road and continued on his way. Soon a Levite from the tribe of the priests, came down the little dirt road, saw the injured man lying there, and he passed by on the other side leaving him there to die. Then a Samaritan, considered a half-breed and despised by the Jews, came down the road and when he saw the injured man, he was filled with compassion and stopped to help him. He bandaged him up, put him on his own mount, and took him to an inn. The man had been robbed and had no money, so the Samaritan paid the inn keeper to give him a room to recover in.

    Who is your neighbor? The one that God 'by chance' put in your path. It is easy to get overwhelmed when you think of the world's problems. How can you make a difference to those imprisoned in foreign nations? Other than prayer, most of us will not. But God places people in each of our paths that we can help, and then we get to choose whether to pass them by and carry on with our busy day, or take a moment to show them the love of Jesus.

    Hebrews 13:2 tells us: 'Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for in doing so, some have entertained angels without knowing it.'

    When you are busy, it is so easy to get upset at that unexpected knock at the door, to send that phone call to voicemail, to walk on past that person asking for help. Many today are beaten down, poor, naked, and abandoned, and all while wearing a suit at work. No one can help everyone, but everyone can help someone. Together we can make the world a better place to live. So be mindful of the one that God puts in your path, for they are your neighbor, and may even be an angel.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please help me recognize those that You put in my path clearly and give me the wisdom to help them. Get my attention, and give the grace and the resources to do what needs to done, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

In Jesus name Amen. Please pray for my mom, Joan.  I had to have her brought to the hospital yesterday.  She was  in extreme pain in her back and legs.  Also, she was disoriented and when the para medics got her to the hospital, she had  trouble breathing, low oxygen, a temperature of 101. They had to intubate her, sedate her, and she is on assisted breathing. She is currently in ICU and of course because of this covid crisis, they won't let me in the hospital to see her. Your prayers are much appreciated. Thanks and may God bless you all..........
