Being the Hands of Christ

Scripture reading

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and do confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

–Psalm 90:17

Thought of the Day

Teresa of Avila in Spain was a nun who was canonized in the mid 1600’s. Saint Teresa was known for her gentleness and commitment to others and to God. I recently read these words she wrote.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours;
No hands but yours; no feet but yours;
Yours are the eyes through which to look our
Christ’s compassion to the world;
Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good;
Yours are the hands with which He is to bless now.

Pretty special words.


Lord, I want to see others as You see them. Amen.
