in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” ~ Matthew 35-36, 40 NIV Remember how it was described to be like the dying man on the road. You were probably thinking, “That is not me or that will never be me,” but it was you. You were lying spiritually dead on the road until a loving Savior picked you up, forgave you of all your sins, and gave you a new life with Him. Each of us has been given

a second chance, and we should be so grateful for our new life that we should want to glorify God by being His hands and feet. God commands us to love those around us in John 15:12, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” Dr. Seuss’ quote reminds me that if we don’t care and help those around us, nothing will get better. Pray for God to open your eyes to the hurting people around you. God has a plan and purpose for each of our lives, and He has plans for us to further His kingdom, we just have to listen, watch, and pray for His guidance. We could easily become like the two men who missed out on help-

ing the dying man. Wipe your eyes and dust off your glasses, God has plans for you to rescue the perishing and the hurting around you.
