Can We Help?

Hebrews 13:16 “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”

 No one can do everything but everyone can do something!
No one can say yes all the time but everyone can say yes sometimes!

Imagine if, when asked for help
Everybody would go
From here to there without kind care
And answer no, no, no

Imagine if nobody walked
The way of second miles
How sad this life of troubled strife
How empty of its smiles

Imagine if, when down and out
The cry for help would plead
But everyone would hope someone
Besides themselves would heed

Imagine if, when asked for help
Nobody would reply
How hard the way of day-to-day
Would be for you and I

Imagine if, when asked for help
With heartfelt friendliness
Heart-cries would cease, stilled by love's peace
Because we all said yes

We (our church-family) has a facebook page that from time to time holds these words 'Can you help?'
Imagine if everyone said 'no'.
Imagine if everyone said 'yes!'
God bless those faithful and sometimes few 'yeses!'
