Reach out to others

-A A +A
By Louis Abel

The poet William Cowper long ago wrote the lines:

 God works in a mysterious way

His wonders to perform.

He plants His footsteps on the sea

And rides upon the storm.


One time, when the road of my life seemed a little rough, a friend placed a hand on my shoulder, and said some comforting words.  I gained courage and went on. Soon the road seemed smoother.

Never neglect the opportunity to reach out your hand to touch someone in need.  That was Jesus' way with others.  Bread lasts but a day, but the touch of a hand will live on.  A loving touch may be an important way to witness for Jesus.  "How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?"

  A few years ago, some new neighbors moved onto my block.  As they moved in, I thought I would go and get acquainted with them.  One of the families, three doors up the street, was friendly.  I invited them to come to my church.  But they weren't interested, even though their membership in a church was over 50 miles away.
