Who you gonna call?

Posted in

The coronavirus has left all of us vulnerable. What we “thought” we could control, our jobs, our health, our future, we now know what internally we all suspected. We really can’t control anything. We never could, but we would fool ourselves into thinking that we  know it all and could do it all. So as terrible as COVID-19 has been with loss of life and destruction around the world, there is a sliver of good. It just might be a realization that everyone needs to learn a new dependence.

We pride ourselves in being an independent people. But, that only goes so far and ultimately turns us inward away from God. Psalm 46:1-3 reminds us this powerful truth: God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. But one more thing…

There are some in our communities that are more vulnerable than others. The “stay-at-home” order has been particularly hard on single parents and widows, financially, emotionally and spiritually. In Luke 7:12-13 look at Jesus’ compassion toward a widow.  And a large crowd from the town was with her.  When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.” When the Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, “Do not weep.”  Jesus raised her son from death moments later. You might not be able to do that, but you and I can raise her spirits and raise her hope during a very difficult time. So…who are you going to call today?
