Galations:6:2- "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ".
Recently there was a video of a group of people running the marathon. Just almost near the finish line, a lady from among that group couldn't run because her legs were weak. When she was about to give up, 2 men who were running along with her came toward her, held her arms and helped her to run. Then another man came forward and carried her till the finish line. The video was really heart-moving to watch.
When I saw that video, it portrayed the selfless act of kindness. It was heart-warming to see strangers who are running the race along with her, slow down and help her to run. This is one good example for caring for someone who needs help. Not all of them will ask for help but we can really understand from their emotions and actions that they need help. There are a lot of people journeying together with us even though they have different goals.
God has given us a heart of love, which helps us to identify the person who needs it. Love can also be in the form of care, listening to their struggles, encourage them to move forward etc...We meet a lot of people who need help but we need the heart to help them first. Yes, everyone is running for a price in their life but when we see a fellow person struggle, we can pause and give them a hand to stand up and run the race. Now I am not talking about the sports race, I am talking about the race in real life.
Helping someone always makes us happy and feel accomplished too. It feels like we are getting trophies before we get the big price from God. Isn't that amazing? Next time you see someone suffering emotionally or physically, help them out.
Dear Abba Father in Heaven,
You are an amazing Father who loves Your children. Lord, we want to do Your will in everything. Lord, help us to be more like You and show us how to help others. God, give us Your wisdom and Your heart. In Jesus Christ name. Amen.
God bless you.
