Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

Reach Out to Others
by Charles R. Swindoll

The generous man will be prosperous, 
and he who waters will himself be watered.
Proverbs 11:25

Close, open relationships are vital. A glib "Hi, how are ya" must be replaced with genuine concern. 

The key term is assimilation. When I use the word here, I'm referring to people reaching out to one another. 

Being absorbed in the function of the family of God as a participant (rather than a spectator)

     . . . relating to

     . . . working with

     . . . caring for others whom I know and love.

As I read it over, I see written between the lines the reminder:

This is

not

automatic.

I am personally responsible.

So are you!
