Daily Verse: “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.” Prov. 24:11

Help others.

When we see someone in need and can help them, God expects us to help. Ignoring others who face dire circumstances dodges responsibility and doesn’t please the Lord.

One night, a man driving down the road found a sinkhole. Stopping before his car plunged into the ravine, he realized he needed to warn others. Seeing headlights coming, he jumped out of his car and began waving his arms wildly to stop them, but the driver ignored his warnings and plunged into the dark hole.  

Another set of headlights appeared in the distance; as it came closer, the man recognized the shape of a bus. Desperate, not wanting them to ignore him, the man threw himself in the middle of the road, forcing the bus to stop saving the lives of the people inside it.

The pastor’s sermon illustration helps us understand the concept of rescuing those in mortal danger. We must do anything to stop people from heading into the ravine.

Ask God to use you, and He will.

Lord, forgive us for ignoring the needs of others. As we see people struggling, show us how we can help them. Give us divine insight into how we can assist people with their troubles. IJNIP. Amen
