Touch a Life
by Anne Cetas
( From Our Daily Bread)
Read: Galatians 6:6-10
Let us not grow weary while doing good.
My friend Dan, who was soon to graduate
from high school, was required to make a
senior presentation. He had 15 minutes to
share how he had made it to the point of
graduation and to thank those who had
helped him along the way.
I gazed around the room before he started
to talk. All kinds of people—young families,
teachers, friends, church leaders, and
coaches—were in attendance. He began to
talk about the ways each person had
touched his life. One woman had “been like
an aunt and had always been there” for him.
A 30-something man “shared Scriptures
often and gave counsel.” Another man had
“taught him discipline and hard work.” A
church friend had “taken him to football
practice every day” because his mom
couldn’t. A couple had “treated him like he
was their own son.” One commonality—
they were all just ordinary Christians who
had reached out to make a difference in
Paul called it doing “good to all, especially
to those who are of the household of faith”
(Gal. 6:10). We can help shape another
person’s life by showing an interest and
taking action. And, as happened with Dan,
we can reap a harvest (v.9).
Look around. Is there someone whose life
needs your touch?
Lord, grant me a heart of compassion
So burdened for others’ needs
That I will show Your kindness
In attitudes, words, and deeds. —Fitzhugh
DO ALL THE GOOD YOU CAN,
IN ALL THE WAYS YOU CAN.
FOR ALL THE PEOPLE YOU CAN
WHILE YOU CAN!.
