And this is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. (1 John 3:23 NRSV)
Several years ago, the Los Angeles Times ran a beautiful human interest story. It happened a few days after the disastrous earthquake in Mexico City. A little Japanese-American boy was going door-to-door in Los Angeles selling picture postcards for twenty-five cents each. He was giving the profits for earthquake relief. One man bought some post cards from the little boy...and then he asked the boy how much he hoped to raise. The little boy answered quickly, "One million dollars!" The man smiled and said, "Do you mean to tell me that you are trying to raise a million dollars to help the earthquake victims all by yourself?" "Oh no, sir," replied the boy, "my little brother is helping me!"
Well, when Christ comes into our lives we become God-filled. We simply can't sit still...we want to get out and do something about it. And we have a Big Brother to help us do it!
Dear God, thank you for the Big Brother who you have given to me so that I may accomplish your will of love. In Jesus name, Amen.
