In yonder years gone by, the Beatles sang this song & when I read the lyrics, I think it had something to do with getting high. I still like the idea, however, of getting & giving help to others. What’s made me think about this today is watching a guy sit & do nothing to help a crippled lady who was totally struggling to open a door. I looked into his eyes after she finally got the door open & he was completely indifferent. To this apathy, I found myself becoming outraged!!
Then I started thinking about this lady’s observable disability – I was extremely motivated to help her when I saw her need. But I felt the Holy Spirit ask me if I was equally as motivated to help those who do not have an observable disability. Just because someone looks put together & functional on the outside doesn’t mean that they’re not falling apart or disabled on the inside. I can’t count the number of times that the Holy Spirit has helped me through various people when I’ve been falling apart on the inside & trying to look put together on the outside. Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to freely express His help and character through us as we help others regardless of how they look on the outside.
