When someone says or does something that hurts you, how do you feel? Do you feel in a position to try to help others then, or is that the last thing on your mind?

I recently read the following quote from Joyce Meyer, which I found quite helpful:

I really believe that something happens on the inside of us – there’s a breakthrough for us – when we reach out to the hurting people…especially when we’re hurting ourselves.

I have found through my own experiences, that through my own suffering, and times of hurt, I understand better how others who are hurting feel, and therefore I’m in a far better position to actually reach out and help others who are hurting, simply because I understand how it feels to hurt.

I pray today that God will help me reach out to those who are hurting and offer them the support and help they need.
