WORD:

“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27, NLT)

THOUGHT:

We too quickly forget, when we see another, that they too are image bearers of God. People with disabilities often have their value and worth questioned in society. God does not question it. He calls us to help everyone to uncover this divine truth, that every person is fearfully and wonderfully made.

PRAYER:

Father, in our interactions with others, especially those experiencing disabilities, may they experience the value and worth You have given them. May our actions and words help others to uncover who they really are in You.

WORD:

Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them.” (Mark 2:3, NIV)

It can be easy to believe that it is only remarkable and extraordinary things that make a difference. Yet, the simplest actions can be transformative. These four men did the most practical thing they knew – each picked up a corner of a mat. It was in meeting an immediate and practical need that the man on the mat was able to encounter Jesus.

PRAYER:

Jesus, may we see the small practical need before us. May we be willing to pick up a corner of someone’s mat so they might encounter you. May we never be too busy to meet the needs of another.
