Carmichael: avoiding helpfulness

Friday, February 28, 2020
    Give generously to [your needy brother] and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to
    —Deuteronomy 15:10 (NIV)
    If something I am asked to do for another feels burdensome; if, yielding to an inward unwillingness, I avoid doing it, then I know nothing of Calvary love.
    ... Amy Carmichael (1867-1951), If [1938], London: SPCK, 1961, p. 50 (see the book)
    See also Deut. 15:10; Lev. 19:18; Matt. 5:42; 2 Cor. 9:7; Philem. 1:14; Heb. 6:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make a willing heart within me.
