You can’t do everything, but everyone can do something. (Max Lucado, best-selling author and preacher)

It’s simple, but true, isn’t it? Yet, we often don’t do anything about the needs around us because they are so great. There are so many hungry, so many homeless, so many disadvantaged—we just can’t take it all in. That excuse wears pretty thin, however, when we may be very close to at least one such sufferer whom we could help if just a little bit.

Pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up (Ecclesiastes 4:10). And we urge you, brothers and sisters . . . encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone (1 Thessalonians 5:14).
