for October 18

Jesus always made time to care for those who were rejected, looked down on, or forgotten. Luke emphasizes this compassion in his Gospel. Do you make time for those in your life who are forgotten, sad, or hurting? Ask Jesus to help you minister to those who need a friend, a listening ear, or a shoulder to cry on.
Come, Holy Spirit, and help me reach out to someone today who experiences some kind of discrimination. Even a smile and a kind word can go a long way. (Taken from "Take Ten: Daily Bible Reflections for Teens.")
