Don’t Ignore The Need


If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?—James 2:15-16

I hate to admit it, but I have done this. I have ignored a brother or sister in need. I do it most when I am most consumed with myself. I rationalize my time, concerns, and needs, and therefore I elevate them above others' needs. But let's not ignore the divine importance of each and every moment. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience. Therefore as we are presented with a physical need, we should respond with a spiritual urgency and not be physically dismissive. And why do we act? Because this is what faith looks like. Faith recognizes that God placed a person with a specific need before you because he knew only you could fulfill it. Today, as you see a need—fulfill it—and discover how meeting a physical need changes the spiritual trajectory in others and yourself.
