ISO: The Qualities of Christ

God expresses His love and care for the human heart in Deuteronomy 15:11 by exclaiming, “For there will never cease to be poor people in the land; that is why I am commanding you, ‘Open your hand willingly to your poor and needy brother in your land.’” One of the most admirable qualities of Jesus is His sacrificial obedience to His father in reaching toward the poor, the overlooked, and ignored. He was the perfect example of how we as Christians can follow in opening our hands willingly. This is the heart of the young-adult national and international missionary at Living Hope. They reach down their hands to pick up a child after a fall. They wipe a tear at 3AM when a child has woken up from a bad dream. They open their hands, sacrificially putting their needs aside to be a reflection of the love and care God beckons us to give. They follow the example of Jesus, who walked in obedience. Becoming a parent overnight is not easy. It’s not always just the kids who shed the tears. But they willingly follow the example, the command of our God. We are so grateful for them and all they have to offer to the children of this ministry.
