Share Your Needs With Others
- 2014 21 Jan
We were never meant to walk our journey alone. Throughout Scripture we read of God creating marriage and families moving forward together. We need each other. The Apostle Paul shares repeatedly that we are to “Carry each others’ burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). Of course we cannot carry each other’s burdens unless we know them and learn about their needs. We must care enough to reach into their lives, ask gentle questions and listen carefully to how we can minister to them. Will you care enough about those in your life to ask how they are doing and what they might need from you?
