We are called to “Carry each other’s another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). As you look around in your circle of influence—be that with a neighbor, a relative, friend or workmate---who needs your help? While they may be silent in their suffering, someone around you could certainly use a touch of kindness, an encouraging word, a helping hand. Are you sensitive to the needs of those around you? Do you reach out and assist those less fortunate than you, who legitimately need assistance? Take time today to consider who might need a touch from God through you.
