As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. - Galatians 6:10 (NIV)
While eating lunch at an airport, I noticed a young soldier a few tables away. I walked over to thank him for his service to our country. I asked where he was headed, hoping to hear “I’m going home.” But he answered, “I’m on my way to Baghdad, sir.”
How is God leading me to respond to the needs of others?

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
