“We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.”

Romans 15:1 (NIV)


Comfort springs from the word of God, they are the surest and sweetest words of life, and the greatest path to hope. Likewise, we are to live and show these words in all our actions. In our humble obedience to these words, we become beacons of help to others. When these words are the direction of our hearts, we move from a life of self-centeredness to a life of helping others. We are become inspired to defend the downtrodden. We bring our words of encouragement to those who need comfort. Through our presence as children of God, we lift up those who struggle. It is not through our judgment that others receive help, but through our Christian attitude of service for humankind. With this attitude, we imitate the very being of Christ, our Lord.

Points of Reflection

  • What acts of kindness have we shown this week and why?
  • When we see the weak is it easier to judge or easier to help?
  • What motivates us to help others and what is the source?

Blessings, until next time,
