It’s one thing to say you care, and another to show you care. Quite honestly, it seems to be getting easier to tell the difference in everyday life. For instance, the person who says, “Yes, I really hope that Sally is doing okay with the children; her son with special needs is a handful. I’ll be praying for her.” Prayer is great, and always the first thing we should do, but that is the prayer part. How might the care part look? It might be as simple as:

  • Sending a note in the mail

  • Offering to prepare a meal

  • Asking via a phone call when you might stop by to do some cleaning

  • Offering to run an errand

  • Doing the grocery shopping

  • Watching the children.

 

There are needs everywhere and all around us. We know we can’t do everything, but we can certainly begin to sense when God is nudging us or calling us to do something to provide for another. We might need help to learn to listen to God’s nudging and not turn our heads; we might need help to become discerning to His voice and not harden our hearts when needs are not convenient or because it’s not what we want to do.
