Christ-Like Hands

Today’s Reflection

LOOK AT YOUR HANDS. Instead of focusing on the wrinkles or age spots, reflect on the countless things those hands have done over the years – the meals they prepared, the miles they drove, the hands they held, the people they helped. Celebrate your hands, and think about how you can use them today to be more like Christ.

“Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him.”
–Mark 1:41 (NASB)
