May 2014 be a year of speaking and ACTING in power

In Luke 7 there is the story of Jesus raising up the son of the widow in Nain.

The story here is not that Jesus had compassion because a woman lost her son… alone. It was not just a matter of a touching scene.

It was a matter of justice as well.

The widow would have nothing. She was without any source of care. There wasn’t Social Security. No life insurance. A woman didn’t have the opportunities to start up a business like she would today.

This woman was in trouble.

And Jesus acted.

May 2014 find me actually seeing people in their situations. Then, may 2014 find me speaking into those situations… and acting in justice far more than makes me comfortable.
