James 2: 15-17 If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. * * * * * * * What if....since we were created in the image of God....what if we were wired from creation to be conduits for compassion? To stop functioning in that capacity or to build a dam to control the flow of that compassion to meet our own needs for love first, giving only when we have overage...violates our nature. We cease to become who we are. What if our lives depend on how we give and not how well we control what is given to us? * * * * * * * What if we trusted you more, Lord? Amen.
