Practical Love By Brenda Drake

        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 practical ways that prove we care for others.

Practical Love

There are many practical ways to bless another
Practical, down- to- earth- ways to serve others
A phone call, a card, or a letter;
To express you are praying for them to feel better.
Do you know someone that is stressed?
Out of sorts with little time to rest?
Show love and concern as a friend;
Treat them to dinner prepared for them.
 Do you know a child with shoes out-grown or overused?
Take them to a new pair choose.
Practical-love works; opportunities are endless.
The profit from involvement is you also are blessed.
With smiles, praises, and blessings, to many to count,
Along with a profit in your heavenly bank account.
Visit those that love you and call those who miss your voice.
When you do your hearts in tune with God will rejoice.
God touches in practical ways as He reaches out to save souls;
When you testify to the lost by your actions He is also made known.

Psalms 143:10
Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

.  Lord, help us to be sensitive to another’s trials and to be
willing and able to assist, thus sharing Your love with them.
