Devotional for November 27

Help Somebody Today



Author: Carrie E. Breck


Scripture: Matthew 25:35-36 and Matthew 25:40

'for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.'



Hymn lyrics:
Look all around you, find someone in need,
Help somebody today!
Though it be little—a neighborly deed—
Help somebody today!

Refrain
Help somebody today,
Somebody along life’s way;
Let sorrow be ended,
The friendless befriended,
O help somebody today!

Many are waiting a kind, loving word,
Help somebody today!
Thou hast a message, O let it be heard,
Help somebody today!

Refrain

Many have burdens too heavy to bear,
Help somebody today!
Grief is the portion of some everywhere,
Help somebody today!

Refrain

Some are discouraged and weary in heart,
Help somebody today!
Someone the journey to heaven should start,
Help somebody today!

Refrain




Today's thoughts:
Look all around you, find someone in need. Be a friend to the friendless with a kind word of encouragement. Writing a letter or making a phone call could make a heavy burden lighter. We are told in Matthew 25:40 'inasmuch as you did it to the least of these...you did it to me.' God uses our hands, our feet and our mouths to do His work. Being able to help others is one of our many blessings for which we are so thankful!
