{ Day 221 }

If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. —Isaiah 58:10-11

The prophet Isaiah said that if we extend our souls for others, then our hearts would be like a well-watered garden. Some of God's people carefully guard their lives from all inconvenience and only contribute as long as their comfort zone isn't disturbed. But we must give ourselves away to God's people as servants of God's purpose. Jesus said the greatest among us would be the servant of all. We can't gaze into the heart of God and retain a "me first" attitude.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Others, Lord, others. Let me reach out with Your love to others. Let me tell them of the miracle of salvation through Your sacrifice on Calvary. Make me a soulwinner, Lord. Let me share in the harvest of souls before You return.

We become devoted to the things and people
He is devoted to.
