Dare to reach your hand into the darkness to pull another hand into the light. (Norman Rice, former mayor of Seattle, Washington)

Sometimes we are so afraid of being hurt or of endangering ourselves that we refuse to reach out to someone in need because he or she is in a dark place, unfamiliar and even frightening to us. But the person who is trapped in the evil of drugs or immorality needs someone to take the first step to bring that unfortunate person into the light and toward freedom and a productive life.

The example of a godly woman: “She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy. (Proverbs 31:20)
