Comment to 'Positive results of the pandemic?'
  • Brother Dan, I admire your optimism in this dark moment when the cases of the Virus now exceed 2 million world-wide. And in the USA one in seven jobs have been lost.

    We might look at this situation and ask why a gracious God allowed it to occur. We must remember however, as you say, that God calls US, the church, to serve not just each other but others as well. We are his hands and feet, so to speak figuratively.

    How do we do it? I'm not sure. The Scriptures speak of working with our hands that we may have something to share. Yet in Jesus' story of the foolish virgins, the head of the house admitted that if he gave up his own oil... then he would have nothing.

    Where is the balance? With Wesley, I would agree: Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can.
