Elaine Quick's Mission Moment
Sunday, March 19, 2023
In the Lenten devotional this week, we talk about blindness and how
Jesus healed the blind man. It made me think that even though I have
the ability to see, sometimes I turn a blind eye to some people or
situations. Sometimes I fail to see the injustice some people are
suffering. I may try to ignore the homeless people on the street. Like
the people in Jesus’ time, I may feel there is a cause for a person’s
situation. If they would get a job, they wouldn’t be homeless. Many
times, I fail to see the real reason a person may have become homeless.
Do they have a mental health issue, is there no family support for them,
do they have a drug or alcohol problem. All I see is the homeless
person – not the person who is homeless.
Through joining this church, my eyes have been opened to many
situations that I was unaware of. I have learned about Fisher House
and how it supports the families of veterans receiving treatment at VA
hospitals. I was made aware of the deported veterans in Tijuana. I
found out about CLUE and the work it does to support underpaid
workers. These are some of the ministries that this church supports. It
makes my happy to know that my donations on Sunday go to support
these causes. You can also help support these groups by giving on line
or in person at the back of the sanctuary.
Please pray with me.
Dear Lord, help us to truly open our eyes to the
situations around us. Stop us from making assumptions about people
or problems without first finding out all the facts. Give us the ability to
do our part of alleviate pain and suffering where we are able. Bless
these gifts and the givers that they may be used to make this small part
of the world a better place. In your name we pray.
