Galatians 6:10 ” As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of Believers.”

COVID 19 and the pandemic have posed to the Church what I think is a season of great importance and significance.  And lately, with all the crucial events happening, it seems even more meaningful to look at this verse from the Church’s perspective.  First, we need to remember that as the Family of God, we are all members of God’s Household and we need to be eager to do what’s good for each other. (Titus 2:14)  Or as Proverbs 3:27 tells us, “Don’t withhold good from those who deserve it, when it’s in your power to act.”  Practicing good this year has taken on new meaning, and the Church should look within its own Body for unfilled needs.  Call it Practical Christianity, but the Church should look at this season in time as a opportunity to bless their own…those who fill the pews, silently suffering with unspoken needs.  Maybe it’s out of shame or embarrassment they don’t ask…but the needs remain the same.  Every person has been touched in some way by the Pandemic…many have lost jobs…many have lost loved ones…now is the time for the Church to shore up and bind up their own.
