"The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want." Mark 14:77
Everywhere we went, everywhere we looked...the need was so great. Jesus was right. The poor and needy are all around us. The question is: Do we see them? Do we take the time to notice them? Not just in Swaziland or in some remote part of the world. But right here...right where we live. As I thought about this verse....it's not the part about the poor always being with us that bothered me....but the part about helping them 'any time we want'. See...it's an issue of the heart isn't it? How we live our lives....where we place our priorities. My prayer is that God in His great mercy will give us all 'the want to'...so that others' lives and ours, will be enriched & changed for good.
