While walking back to church after lunch this week I had a wonderful opportunity to help a young woman. She was out walking her beautiful St Bernard dog, but the dog was tired and had given up. I came across them on the very edge of busy Greenhill Road. The dog was huge and the woman did not have the strength to drag the dog home. I suggested that I hold the dog’s lead and that the woman start walking. She had not gone more than a few steps and the tired dog jumped up and followed her home.
God’s love and grace are so freely given that we are inclined to forget that following Jesus can be tiring and at times we may like to give up. Remember who you serve. Jesus will never give up on you. “Love so amazing, so divine demands my soul, my life, my all.”
