2/10/15 Daily Devotion

Acts 3:3-5 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.

Why did they have to tell the begger to look? Most beggars, as people were entering through the gate, would extend their hand up towards those passing by while they lowered the heads towards the ground. This happened because the beggars were treated as if they were lower on the spectrum of life as compared to others. Most people looked down upon them as if they were unimportant. Many looked at their condition as a result of sin. Some just didn’t care about them or the reason for their plight. This type of attitude for the Christian is unacceptable. We are not the judge of another’s life, but we are called to intervene wherever it is possible, wherever we can without straining our own existence.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become willing to reach out to others in their time of need.
