But she came and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, help me." (Matthew 15:25 NRSV)

Anthony De Mello tells a story about some people who were on a raft off the coast of Brazil. They were perishing from thirst--for as you know, ocean water is undrinkable. What they did not know, however, was that the water they were floating on was fresh water. A nearby river was coming out into the sea with such force that it went out for a couple of miles, so they had fresh water right there where they were. But they had no idea. "In the same way," says De Mello, "we're surrounded with joy, with happiness, with love. Most people," he concludes, "have no idea."

And that's true. There are a lot of hurting, shattered people in this world for whom help is at hand if they only knew it. The treasure is just waiting to be discovered through our friend Jesus Christ. Share the Savior!

Lord Jesus, give me opportunities to share your salvation. Amen.
