FOR WE ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP

 

SEEING OTHER'S NEEDS
By Vonette Bright

“Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.” --1 Peter 3:8

Pat was still reeling from the news – her husband had died on an airplane while on a mission trip. Her whole world had changed. Even grocery shopping was a challenge. At one point in the grocery store, she reached for a bottle of picante sauce, “Rona’s” favorite salsa.

Pat burst into tears. She was weak-kneed and sank down to the floor. People rushed by, ignoring her. No one seemed to care and that made it worse. Finally she gathered herself and thought, “How many people have I walked by who were hurting?”

So, rather than focusing on her own pain, she determined, with God’s help, to be sensitive to others’ pain. God was teaching her the lesson of choosing to become a blessing or to become bitter.

Dear one, someone near needs you to be a blessing today.

Excellent!  I can relate to this article.  WE need to humble ourselves.  WE need to realize that others are hurting!  They are trying to cope! We are in the same boat!
