God in Heaven,
I am thinking about the uses of hands.
They are extremely important in so many of life’s activities.
As I reflect on the Hands of Jesus,
There dawns a new awareness. During His earthly life they were ever employed in acts of caring. Those Hands brought relief to suffering and solutions to people in deep need of help.
A glance around me reveals many folk who are lonely, sick and discouraged – Simply weighed down with burdens of life. Please touch them in sympathy, love and understanding.
Right now I recall a lesson taught to me in childhood. Heaven touches people most effectively through hands of dedicated Christians.
I offer You my hands to be used unselfishly in service!
