Troubling Quote

Saw in a classroom
Not my problem,
not my business,
nothing to do with me.  

Have you heard this one? So many live by this philosophy. Then cancer strikes. Then Alzheimer's strikes. Then a loved one dies. Or is missing.
Sure it's true we cannot take on the problems of this world. We are limited  with time and resources.
The LORD is not limited in resources. Sometimes we are the resources that help. At the very least we can have a prayer list and remember others in prayer. Philippins 2:4 reads, Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.

LORD, help me to care as you care for this world and its problems.  Give me heart. Put wings to my care also. Amen.


  1. It's a daily dying to self... isn't it? I fail often! Thanks for the reminder.

  2. Yesterday I did something I haven't done in maybe years. I was at a long traffic light and rolled down my window and gave a ten dollar bill to Michael and prayed with him that his life would get back to normal. I may never see him again, but Michael does know that our great God is there for him.
