An Opportunity

The apostle Paul wrote:  “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10)

There are numerous good works in which Christians can participate—feed the hungry, cloth the naked, shelter the homeless, etc. I would like to remind all of us of one standing opportunity that is always there—our shut-ins. We have members of this congregation who for years were faithful worshipers of the Lord but who now are confined to their homes. These all appreciate a visit from their Christian friends.

I guess it would be fair to say that none of us visit enough. So this is a reminder to us all. Why not make out a list of those whom you feel you should visit and resolve to do so. Maybe determine to make at the very least one visit per month. Then when you have finished, start over. This is a good work in which every able-bodied person can participate.
