10 Days Without Human Touch was hard especially when I was around my wife and two boys. I hate not being able to hold my boys and kiss my wife. Those are two major parts of my life that have been missing for the past 10 days, and I’m glad to have them back.
But for a lot of people, being an untouchable is a way of life. They see no hope of it coming to an end any time soon, and they may even die an untouchable. Unless of course we do something about it. Here are the groups of untouchables that we’ve talked about this week:
2. Homeless people. Take a homeless person out to lunch or coffee, and get involved in your local rescue mission.
3. The Elderly. Nursing homes are full of elderly people that don’t have many visitors. You could make their day and show them the love of Christ in a really cool way. FYI — this may be the best way for us to serve widows.
5. Prisoners. Again, just like homeless people — these guys and gals have made bad decisions that have isolated them from affection and love. By getting involved in a local prison ministry or connecting with Prison Fellowship, you could hand deliver the love of Christ to an inmate.
6. Kids without dads (or with bad dads). Find an organization that works with single moms that come from bad or abusive situations. Unfortunately, abuse towards women and children is far too prevalent in the United States, and if you take the time to look you will find an entire group of moms and kids that need your help and love.
There are several more groups of untouchables, and I could spend an entire day listing them off for you. These 6 groups alone are overwhelming, but you don’t have to get involved in all 6. Pick one of these groups of people that you are passionate about and that God is calling you too, and figure out what you can do to bring them the affectionate touch they so desire.
Thanks for walking through this journey with me!
