DAY 16: Friday, October 16
SCRIPTURE: “But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’” -Luke 10:33-35
OBSERVATION: Perhaps there is no passage that so clearly reminds us of Paramedics. While others are wondering what to do or simply standing and staring, Paramedics rush in to supply aid. They see things they wish they could forget. They do whatever is necessary. Untold lives are saved through their effort.
PRAYER: Father, we praise You have supplied this world with Paramedics. They remind us of You and Your action through Jesus. Please bless them. Please comfort them. Please guide them on every situation to which they are called. Thank You for so often working through their efforts. Protect their health. Protect their families. And please continue opening people’s hearts to be called to such blessed work. We pray these things through Jesus. Amen
