It is nice to hear a word of encouragement in a time of need. But it is much more memorable when there is a practical effort to help in the need along with the encouraging words. Our Lord will show us the practical ways to prove we care for others. Lord help us to be sensitive to another’s trials and to be willing and able to assist, thus sharing Your love with them.
There are many practical ways to bless another
Practical, down to earth ways to serve others
When is the last time you have sent a card or a letter,
To express that you are praying for them to feel better?
Do you know someone that is much stressed,
Out of sorts with little time to rest?
Why not treat them to a dinner prepared for them,
To show your love and concern as their friend?
A child’s shoes out-gown or overused?
Lead them to a new pair choose.
Practical-love works; the ways are endless.
The profit from your labor is you too are blessed;
With smiles, praises, and blessings, too many to count,
Along with an addition to your heavenly bank account.
Visit those that love you and call those who miss your voice.
Make a social call the brethren so your hearts in tune rejoice.
Tell the lost about Jesus and also by your actions show,
The way God also touches in practical ways as He reaches out to save souls
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
