You must actively help the hungry and feed the oppressed. Then your light will dispel the darkness, and your darkness will be transformed into noonday. — Isa 58:10 NET

Exceeding gifts from God are not blessings, they are duties. They do not always increase a man’s happiness; they always increase his responsibilities.
— Charles Kingsley.

Make a rule and pray for help to keep it. Once a day spare room for a thought that will pursue a strong purpose. Help in some way the progress of a weary soul who cannot repay you.
— M. B. S.

There is no true potency, remember, but that of help; nor true ambition, but ambition to save.
— John Ruskin.


Heavenly Father, when I think of how little I have given away my heart burns with shame, as I recall what thou hast given to me. May I from this day be more thoughtful of thy tender compassion by being less selfish with what I have. Amen.
