GOD PAUSE: Imagine (and some believe there is) there is a cure for cancer. Yet for whatever reason, the cure is not put to use to bring health and healing to those who so desperately need it. What a tragedy that would be, right? And yet a greater tragedy is that people all around us are lost without God. Without hope. And heading into a Christless eternity. So God tells you and me “Go and rescue the perishing! Be their savior. Why would you stand back and watch them stagger to their death?” (Proverbs 24:11). Dear heavenly Father, may I and my friend lift up our eyes and see those around us as you do. Lead us to the strays today, O God. Keep us on the mission of rescuing the perishing. And caring for the dying. Amen and amen.
