How are you at offering comfort and support to others?

Some find it easy to reach out to others when they see someone upset or in need of help; others are reticent to “get involved”; others will simply turn away pretending not to have noticed – Which kind are you?

We may not be the best at trying to comfort others in their hour of need, but the important thing is that we at least try to help. God wants us to help our neighbours and our friends, after all if we don’t help the person in need may end up with no-one. We don’t have to be great speakers or trained to counsel others to reach out and help, as sometimes when someone is upset, just having someone there to give them a hug and a few words of support, is all they need.

So be a comforter today.
