Somebody's Front Porch

Today’s devotion was written by John Roedel.


You are somebody’s front porch to God.
You are someone’s doorway to mercy.
You are the world’s threshold to kindness.
You are my entrance to letting go of regret.

No pressure, but…
Your life is a gateway to peace
for both strangers and friends alike.

Whether you realize it or not…
Empathy has chosen you to turn your
heart into a welcome mat for the rest of us.

This is purpose of your life…
To let your existence become a candlelit
veranda of hope for the rest of us to
gather on during the long night.

- John Roedel
