Dear Lord,
Your message is clear.
“Go out and help the needy.”
Yet so often day after day goes by
and I have done nothing
but live my own life,
take care of my own needs,
cater to my own wants.

Help me to look out
and see those in need of You.

And then give me the nudge
that I need
to extend myself
to not only see,
but to do.

Amen
