The Pain of Others – Closing Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
There will be pain in the journey. It will come in many forms. Our pain is ours and cannot be judged or determined by others. We need to be honest about our hurt and notice those who respond with compassion. We need to not make the pain our banner as well.
More importantly I am to see the hurt and pain in others and do what I can to help. In the pain of others I find the opportunity to help them see that they are loved. I wish that no one were ever hurt. A fallen world means that they will be hurt.
Pain is a direct result of the world moving from good to not good. We get to aid in moving it back towards good when we care for others in pain. It is my responsibility to always care for the pain of others. I cannot mitigate it all. I cannot heal everything.
I can walk with the wounded and be supportive. I can comfort where possible. I can without hold judgement and hold out faith, hope, and love. The focus must always be love and compassion that makes a difference.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
