I pray today for God to reveal His will to me. That's something I am kind of afraid of since I want my own way.
So while you are unemployed and hanging around waiting for a revelation from God, why not decide to go out and do some volunteer work and help someone in need?
Remember the Samaritan had to CROSS THE ROAD to help the man who lay injured. He had to change his direction, just like Simon did when he was turned around to carry Jesus’ cross. He was reluctant because his heart was set on going its his own way.
Just think, when you help share or lift the burden of another in this way, you are in fact carrying the cross for Jesus... Jesus speaks to us about this way in Scripture (Matthew 25 : 31-46) This is God’s will for all of us.
Yes... you are right. And I do try to help people. Just last week I bought a stranger something to eat. And I do raise my son and take care of the house. But you are right. You make perfect sense.
So how do I go about trying to find ways to help others? I was thinking about Catholic Charities. Do you know of any organizations I can look into?
Years ago I tried to volunteer at my local hospital but there was a long waiting list.
I don't recall the entire story of Simon. Is the entire story in Catholic tradition?
