Every Day God Gives Opportunities to Help Others
By Rick Warren

“Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them.” Proverbs 3:27 (NLT)

Every day God gives you opportunities to show kindness to people around you. As he does, he’s watching to see how you’ll respond. 

Will you choose to be self-centered? Or will you notice the people who need a word of encouragement, a pat on the back, an errand done for them, or some other practical means of help?

The Bible says, “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them” (Proverbs 3:27 NLT). 

You won’t always have an opportunity to help. So when you do, just do it!

You probably have people in your life that you’ve thought about helping. You have the best intentions. But you’ve done nothing. Why?

Maybe you’ve made excuses. You might have thought, “I’ll do it when things settle down.” Guess what? Things never will. 

If you’re going to do any good in your life, the time is now. The Bible says, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done” (Ecclesiastes 11:4 TLB).

Do good now because you’re not guaranteed tomorrow. 

Jesus said, “All of us must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent me, for there is little time left before the night falls and all work comes to an end” (John 9:4 TLB).

God has tasks he wants you to do. Don’t wait for perfect conditions to do them. Instead, look every day for the opportunities God gives you to help and encourage others. And just do it.
