Share and Share Alike – Day 28

“Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.”
Romans 12:13
The priest began his sermon with “Let me share with you,” setting my mind into wonderland, the land where brethren share the sights and sounds, the smells and tastes of the moment in eternity so important to the participants. It made me aware of the importance of sharing what I know of God’s Word. I wondered if I should continue to share the Gospel with those in foreign lands or would it be better to share the Word with those already practicing the faith, those who needed encouragement in their walks? Either way I’d be sharing!
We all have a need to share. That’s why we come out of isolation and why we need others to share and share alike. Even those with special circumstances – like sufferers of PTSD, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer survivors, alcoholism, and narcotics addictions – need sharing groups in the Church. These thoughts raced through my mind while the sermon concluded with a call to “share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.” Pray for those who need sharing and those who need to share.
