Praying And Doing

We pray for guidance. “God please lead us today into what is pleasing in your sight.”


An opportunity to serve appears before us.

We ignore it.

We see someone who could use a helping hand.

We say we’re too busy to stop and pass by.

Someone needs an encouraging word.

We tell them to pray about it–and continue on our way.

Does it make sense to pray for guidance and then ignore opportunities God has placed before us?

The Bible and other Christian literature is filled with stories of people who did the first little act of service leading to a life in the spirit.
