Jesus called us to love our neighbors. He proclaimed in Luke 10:27
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”
When our neighbors are in pain will we answer the call?
When our neighbors suffer calamity will we respond with love and help?
The storm winds blow and flood waters rise, but together we are greater than the storm. We can help and show love to neighbors in trouble.
It is even more crucial as we watch the horrible scenes unfold in Houston.
We need to stand firm in prayer for the victims. Lifting them up to Him daily with all our heart. As other storms threaten, we need to pray for God to spare our country a major disaster that will bring calamity for even more neighbors.
We also need to put action behind our prayers, give as much as we can.

The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord sits enthroned as king forever. May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!
