2 Corinthians 1:3-4
While we should always feel free to bring our hurts and concerns to God, the Father has also given us another source of help in times of trouble. As believers, we can lean on one another when we’re hurting. When we experience God’s comfort, we can help others by sharing our experience of His help and healing with others who are struggling. God often delivers His help through the members of Jesus’ body. Seek the comfort of others, and be a comfort to others.
Questions for further thought:
1. Can you recall a time when God used another believer to provide support to you?
2. What experiences have you had that God might use to provide support for others?
Challenge: Ask God to help you recognize opportunities to bring comfort to others. Be alert for His leading in this area for the rest of October.
