Daily in Your Presence - Aug. 12

Day 225


On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. . .

and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.

John 2:1-2

My child, I did not create you to live alone. All around you I have placed divine appointments—people to love, people with needs. Do you have room in your heart for others? Do you know what to say when you walk into a crowded room? Some are skilled in drawing out the best in others, while others shrink in terror at the thought of speaking the first word to a stranger. People need the Lord, My child. And I need you to tell them about Me.  I'll give you the words—and sociability, too.

Wherever people flocked together, Lord, You made room in Your heart for them. Meeting needs, touching lives, changing hearts, You spent time with all of them, no matter what their status, background, or race. Lord, if You loved and needed people, so do I. Your sociability encourages me to make others a priority. Thank You for caring.


Jesus' welcome mat is always out.
