Meeting others’ needs


God’s plan for your life is that His love flow through your life, reach out to others and meet their needs.

We’ve been taught that for as long as we’ve been in church. For TexasHope 2010, I’m reading through a workbook titled Witness to the World by Oscar Thompson and Carolyn Thompson Ritzmann that adds a great aspect that enables us to do this.

A passage in the workbook continues, “You do not meet their needs from your reservoir. You meet needs from God’s reservoir. Your resources and your love are from God, and you must draw them from Him. That’s why your love for God must precede your love for the lost. If you love God, you will love those He loves. To love without action, without meeting needs, is not love. Jesus always expressed His love for people by meeting their needs.”
