Yom Kippur — the holiest day of the year — begins TONIGHT.
Repentance, Prayer, and Charity are key descriptions of this time.
In the final hours before Yom Kippur, we examine our hearts and ask ourselves… are we doing all we can with what God has blessed us with?
Based on a passage from Ecclesiastes the following shows how actions in a “family” describes YOUR godly work.:
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. (4:9-12)
Solomon reminds us that it’s not enough to have prayerful empathy for the suffering. Our prayers are important, but they must also lead to action!
