Bible Verse: Acts 20: 35
have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Support one another
At times we get so caught up with our own affairs that we think we’re ok and that we can go it alone. Only when things get rough and the weight of our burdens become heavy, do we look around for some assistance. There is no shame in realizing
that we need and want the support of our friends. As Christians, when we see a brother or sister struggling we should instinctively desire to help.
Some believe it’s a sign of weakness to want someone to help carry our load. Yet, that is why we have a community, so that each person can have the benefit of the aid of those around them and not feel alone or isolated. We must actively look for ways that we can lend our support. This is what God requires. If we’re doing what He asks, then no one should be faltering or in need.
Generally, we assume we’re doing enough to care for our friends and loved ones. We want the best for them and we want them to prosper, but there is always room for further benevolence and compassion. Even those that seem to be doing well, require our support and encouragement. Only God knows what’s really going on inside.
I encourage you all to find ways to lovingly offer your help to those around you. May His peace be with you all.
