Lend a Hand?

by Mark T. Hancock · 1 comment

Lend a handI read that even the most introverted person will influence an average of 10,000 people in their lifetime.

When we get intentional about this and approach each day sensitive to the opportunities that we have – every day – we multiply that impact.

As we move beyond a small circle of incidental connections and lift our eyes we begin to do our greatest work for God; we represent Christ here as He represents us in heaven.

We partner with Him in what Dr. TL Osborn calls “BIG KINGDOM BUSINESS”.   It’s the business of taking interest in people.  Not for any personal gain, but for their sake.

Forget evangelism for a moment.  Encourage somebody.  Lend a hand.   Lend an ear.   Just help somebody.  God will show up.

I’m not talking about mamby-pamby new-agey pass-it-on kharma.  I’m talking about the very real Presence of God through the Body of His believers.

In the 23rd Psalm, David wrote, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.”

What follows you?

When goodness and mercy follow, Love is not far behind.

I was glad you stopped by because I enjoyed the company. Now I’m glad I stopped by because I enjoyed the ministry. Bless you my brother, and thank you for the powerful word.
