Hebrews 6:10 “God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them.”  (NIV)

One of the greatest ways we can show God’s love is to help others. Most churches have faithful people who serve and worship God by compassionately – and very often quietly – supporting others who are undergoing hard times, health issues, and other problems. As a pastor, I am constantly amazed and encouraged by kindhearted people who live their lives lovingly. They make the world a better place and do a lot for the well-being of the local community with their good works, generosity, and empathy. Their faith is very down-to-earth and highly practical; in God’s eyes, their good works are commendable and memorable which is plainly expressed in today’s highlighted Bible verse.

Application Q: What good can I do today? Who can I encourage and support at this time?

Prayer: Lord Jesus, You showed God’s love by healing people who were hurt, comforting those who were grieving, and restoring those who were lost. Your compassion displayed the goodness of God’s Kingdom in the world. Help us to do all that we can to follow in your footsteps today. In Your Holy Name, we pray. Amen.
