Educating for the Lived Gospel #208

The LORD is near to the broken-hearted
and saves the crushed in spirit (Ps 34:18)

‘Do it self’ will be heard emerging from the mouth of a toddler as she/he asserts their independence and self-efficacy. There are adults who think they don’t need God. All is right with their world. The person who has lost their job or a loved one or is dealing with some calamity is looking for solace. Stripped of all pretense, they will pray for comfort. Our faith assures us that their prayer will be answered, in some way.

As we intentionally do God’s work and are ‘God’s heart and hands’, we will comfort the young person in distress. Thus they will receive some physical comfort, along with spiritual comfort if they are open, from the God who loves them dearly.

Have a great week!
Patrick
