What Do I Do?

“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” (Philippians 2:4)

A friend of mine shared true story with us:

When the bubonic plague struck Wittenberg, Germany, in 1527, Martin Luther and his wife Katharina, who was pregnant at the time, decided to stay—rather than flee—in order to minister to the sick and dying. He wrote to Christians in a neighboring city these words: “I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance infect and pollute others, and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If my neighbor needs me, however, I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely.”

Martin and Katharina Luther were spared. In interpreting this historical event, contemporary Christian writer Jim Denison shares: “Choosing to hope in God as the Luthers did sustains us as nothing else can. It reminds us that the worst that can happen to us leads to the best that can happen to us.”

We are in a trying time. Dreams are changed. People are scared. We all ask “what do I do?”  

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in an article says: Pray deeply. Immerse yourself in God’s Word. Guard your heart. Care for others. Support crisis ministry.

Luther was smart and did what was necessary. He was caring and did what was needed. He was a man of faith and trusted in a living Savior. May we all do the same.

Question: How are you doing during this pandemic?

Challenge: If you are finding yourself worried or fearful, go to God’s Word for answers and strength. If you feel that you should be doing something, be smart. In all things trust our living Savior.

Prayer: Father thank you for wisdom, for people who go out to serve, and for people who listen and observe the words of smart minded people. You are God and we trust You. Amen.
