Our Job Is Not To Be Someone’s Savior

Our Job Is Not To Be Someone's Savior, But To Point Them To The Savior

 

“Then those ‘sheep’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.’ (‭Matthew‬ ‭25‬:‭37-40‬ MSG)

There have been times when I see a beggar on the side of the road, I’ll be honest y’all, I lock my doors and keep my windows up. I’m not proud of this. In fact I believe that God wanted me to share this with you today because maybe you do it too. We may think that we’ve worked so hard for our money, or don’t have enough to just “give away” to someone who may not use it for the right things… But it’s not our place to ask questions. God is only asking us to see them as His children and show them love. He’s not asking us to be their Savior but to point them to the Savior! And when someone can see God’s love in action, it’s much easier for them to believe us when we say God loves them.

#AMORNINGPRAYER: Lord, forgive me for passing judgment. Show me how I can practically help the people You bring across my path. I want to put love into action. Amen
