Lenten Devotional for March 8

The Hands and Feet of Christ

devoShepherd

Luke 10:25-37

He responded, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.
—Luke 10:27

Reflect:

Help me, dear God,
to see my brother with the eyes of Christ,
to hear my sister with the ears of Christ,
to taste my neighbor’s hunger with the mouth of Christ,
to smell creation’s beauty with the nose of Christ,
to touch the world’s pain with the hands of Christ,
and to love life, each life, every life,
with the heart of Christ.
—Sam Hamilton-Poore*

Pray:

Lord, I am called to love my neighbor. Help me to be your hands and feet in the world. Amen.

Respond:

As you watch the news today, determine if there’s something you can do to make a difference. Where can you speak up or make a plan for action?
