14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? 17 So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
God of compassion,
Open our hearts and our hands to our neighbors – those we already know and those we have yet to meet. Move us to meet the immediate human needs of our sisters and brothers. Give us a faith that expresses itself daily in works. Amen.
This week’s video is from A-SPAN, committed to ending homelessness in Arlington. We’re having a scarf-making event this Saturday (1/13) morning at church to share love with our homeless neighbors. Join us!
