We're all living in difficult times. Friends can help friends get through anything, but how can friends help ease the burden of one another’s medical costs, especially during a pandemic?

It’s in times like these Christians are called to help and care for one another, even if we can’t be physically together.

There are endless references in the Bible relating to helping your fellow brothers and sisters, especially when times are tough. Take for example, James 2:14-17 which says: “"Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."

We must have more than good intentions – we must take action. While it may not be easy to make a big difference by ourselves, if we come together with others, we can make a difference for many people in times of need.

As individuals, we don’t often have the structure needed to bring together large groups of people to unite around a specific cause. It's in these times that established organizations can step in to help facilitate the process of organizing people to achieve a larger goal together than they could achieve alone. When coming together across a wide geographical area and involving a purpose that includes the sharing of medical needs, the need for a helping hand is even larger.

One Christian-based organization who facilitates the sharing of funds in order to assist in the paying of medical expenses is Liberty HealthShare. They provide a simple way to help people afford their medical expenses: it’s called healthsharing. Each month, healthsharing members contribute a monthly ‘share’ amount to their sharing community, and as fellow members incur medical expenses, eligible medical expenses are matched to these needs. It’s a real life implementation of Romans 12:13 which states: "Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality." 

While healthsharing is a great way for us to help our fellow brothers and sisters in their time of need, it’s also a way for you to make sure you and your family are able to receive assistance in your time of need. When you become a member of Liberty HealthShare, you’re joining a community of members who are there for each other not only financially but also emotionally in each other’s time of need. In addition to sharing funds to pay medical expenses, members of Liberty HealthShare are also able to share prayers and well wishes with each other through a secure, private site called ShareBox. This allows people who otherwise may not have any other way of interacting or assisting each other to connect and offer prayer, encouragement and support to one another when it’s needed most.

Liberty HealthShare brings people together to help them take control of their health and gives members a way to get affordable and fair pricing for medical costs. As a Christian-based organization, they strive to achieve this goal in a way that serves the Lord, as stated in the values on their website: “We honor Christ by giving selfless service, compassionate living, acting with integrity and producing innovative solutions."

As this uncertain time continues, having an organization such as Liberty HealthShare that is bringing together a large group of individuals and families from across the country to assist each other is more important than ever now. Liberty HealthShare offers some peace of mind to Christians who want assurance that they’re part of a community who aligns with their beliefs and values.

Even when we get past this uncertain time in history, we will inevitably continue to face challenging times throughout our lives and having a group of friends there to help you can make all the difference. Healthsharing offers exactly that, giving members from across the country the ability to help their fellow members in their most challenging times.
