HAVING IDENTIFIED THE PEOPLE, I HAVE HARMED, I WILL NOW GO AND MAKE RESTITUTION TO THEM. UNLESS TO DO IS GOING TO CAUSE THEM OR OTHER PAIN OR SUFFERING
Do you know someone who needs help and you can be that help?
1 John 3:17 Suppose someone sees a brother or sister in need and can help them. If he doesn’t take pity on them, how can the love of God be in him?
We need each other. None of us were designed to be alone. That’s why God created Eve.
Helping one another is an important part of the recovery process. In the recovery process, we should never think of ourselves as totally independent. We need the help of others and they need our help. And, none of us are excused from that task. John 13:34 says “I give you a new command. Love one another. You must love one another, just as I have loved you.” Loving each other is a commandment not an option. Recovery only works as it should when we all work together for the common good of all

Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and complete Christ’s law.
You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself.
Prayer: Lord, help me today to see others needs and help where I can
