SOC Sunday-On My Mind

This saying has been on my mind lately “There but for the grace of God, go I”.  I did some research as to do the origin of that quote, and wasn’t able to find much.  But it’s on my mind a lot lately afater a friend shared her plight.  A friend. who by all looks lives likes us..middle class, her and her husband both work, two kids, is going through a crisis.  The kind of crisis that we have been seeing on the news lately.  I want to help, because not only is she a friend, but I see myself in her situation.  It could have been my family in the same situation, but there for the grace of God.  I also want to help and help in such a way that I don’t expect anything in return, or feel that she is obligated to me.  I keep saying this little prayer “ Lord, help me help my friend without expecting anything in return”.
