Reach out to others
Living Life Recovery Reflection #310, 2017
1 Corinthians 10:24 We should not look out for our own interests. Instead, we should look out for the interests of others.
In the Bible Jesus taught us two lessons in Luke 14:7-14. He taught us that service is more important than status. He also taught us that caring is demonstrated by how much we reach out to others less fortunate than we are. In the case of recovery that is people not as far down the recovery track as we are.
Everyone needs recovery! none of us are so well adjusted to life and its problems that we will never need anyone else to help us and care about us. God expects us to care about and look after each other. We are all called to help the homeless, hungry, sick and imprisoned as if they were Jesus (Galatians 4:8-14)
- Do you avoid people who are suffering – or are you willing to do what you can to help them?
Prayer: Lord help me today to reach out to someone less fortunate than I am
and do what I can to help them
