“You shall not see your brothers ox or his sheep going astray, and hide yourself from them; you shall certainly bring them back to your brother. And if your brother is not near you, or if you do not know him, then you shall bring it to your own house, and it shall remain with you until your brother seeks it; then you shall restore it to him. You shall do the same with his donkey, and so shall you do with his garment; with s, which he has lost and you have found, you shall do likewise; you must not hide yourself.
“You shall not see your brother’s donkey or his ox fall down along the road, and hide yourself from them; you shall surely help him lift them up again.” Deuteronomy 22:1-4 New King James Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) for blessing me with the knowledge, skill and opportunity to glorify You by my actions and perhaps bring a lost little sheep to You holy fold. I humbly give praise to You in the name of He who was gracious to all His neighbours Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
