She has done what she could.
Mark 14:80

Wess Stafford wrote about a teacher assigned to work with a hospitalized schoolchild on nouns and adverbs. Arriving at the hospital, she was taken to the burn unit. She had to scrub and put on sterile attire, and she found the schoolboy in pain. The teacher felt apprehensive, but she told the boy "I'm the special visiting hospital teacher, and your teacher sent me help you with your nouns and adverbs." She went through the material with him and then left, feeling little had been accomplished.
The next morning when she returned, the nurse met her and said, "Since you were here yesterday his whole attitude has changed. He's fighting back, responding to treatment. it's as though he's decided to live."
What had happened The boy himself later explained, "They wouldn't send a speacial teacher to work on nouns and adverbs with a dying boy, now,would they?"
Sometimes we impart hope to others by just showing up with compassion and doing what we can in the name of Christ. When we do what we can, He will bless what we do and all we do.
There is something fundamentally wrong with claiming to love God without a passion to love people. After all what is God. He is love.
