Pray, give, serve

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,  that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come. Luke 4:18-19

Whenever we become aware of an opportunity to proclaim truth, offer release, open eyes, or set free oppressed people we have a choice. Participate, enable, or ignore. It’s not a cafeteria where we can pick only the missions we feel equipped to perform or help only the people who awaken our sympathies.

Lord, show me how and when to pray, to give, or to serve.
