Lutheran Family Service provides place of hope

In John 8, a woman is set to be stoned after being caught in an adultery.

Jesus’ response: Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.

What would your response be?

Neglect? Hatred? Comforter? Forgiver?

Our God is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. (Psalm 116:5).

“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer,” shared Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran theologian.

The Bible is filled with compassionate hearts, including Ruth, the widow of Zarephath, Moses, Joseph, Paul, Barnabas, the Good Samaritan.

For the Quad Cities and a portion of the Midwest, Lutheran Family Service provides compassion and a place of hope, through the Gospel, to all those in need.

“We need to be lifting up the women and men that have been affected by mental health, unplanned pregnancies, and struggling marriages in prayer,” shared Kari Smith, who has spent the past eight years serving as an adoption case worker and pregnancy counselor with Lutheran Family Service. “All of these struggles silence people, and they need to know that they are loved and forgiven by our Lord.”

“Be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.” (1 Peter 3:8)
