The Meditation

Do you remember the story of the little boy who

carried another boy on his shoulder and

a stranger asked, “Isn’t he too heavy?”

“No,” replied the little boy, “He is my brother.”

Love sent Kagawa to live in a little room six feet

square in the slums of Kobe.

Love kept Grenfell in the cold north land of

Labrador bringing healing to the helpless.

Love sent Helen Keller out across the world

ministering to the blind and those who could

not speak.

Love is the greatest power for motivating men and women

to do good and to be good.

For love’s sake, one person will live for another,

die for another, suffer for another.

For love’s sake, Jesus came and He still comes to

bring blessing and forgiveness to the homeless,

the helpless, and the hopeless.

“For love’s sake” is the grace that turns an

ordinary gift into a sacrament of friendship.
