If you read the New Testament carefully, you
will discover that the disciples of Jesus Christ
were usually being sent somewhere, in distance from
a half mile to several hundred miles.
If Christ were to send us somewhere today,
would it matter where? And, would we go?
Ponder these lines by George M. Matheson...
To the hearts without a home
To the lives without a love
To the crowd without a compass
To the ranks without a refuge
To the children whom none have blessed
To the famished whom none have visited
To the demoniacs whom none have claimed
To the fallen whom none have lifted
To the lepers whom none have touched
To the bereaved whom none have comforted
Then I shall have the birthright of the fist born
Then shall I have the blessing of the mighty God of Jacob
