Reflection

Being the hands and feet of Jesus is about service and caring for other people. Doing good things, and doing kind and helpful things spreads his word of doing for others. Walking in his steps in giving to others, and working with our hands and hearts to help others. To do his work without looking for something in return. Helping others who need help and are sometimes afraid to ask for it. Knowing that helping them will give them peace and relief from having to worry about their problems. Sometimes small things can be some of the greatest gifts for their family and their soul.

"Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong."1 Corinthians 16:13
