It is estimated that in the USA alone, we spend a whopping $80 million every year on hand sanitizer. It is probably money well spent. No one can argue with the fact that hand sanitizer is a necessary product...it protects us from disease, it cleans up our messy hands, it prevents germs from spreading. Hand sanitizer is indispensable in hospitals, clinics, schools, churches, and restaurants- wherever crowds gather, there we will find hand sanitizer.
But in our 'sanitized' and clinical world, it is easy to forget that sometimes, ministry might require us to get our hands messy, or hold the hand of a dirty child, or reach out and touch something we would rather not hold. We are here to represent Jesus- and without our hands He cannot reach out and touch the lives of others. Are you ready to be vunerable? Whose hand will you hold this week?
