WE NEED EACH OTHER
“And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.”
Luke 10:34 KJV
Carrie Elizabeth Ellis Breck wrote a beautiful heart touching hymn “Help Somebody Today”. Joyce Landorf Heatherley, a Christian author and speaker, said on one of her teaching tapes “The people we sit next to in church look fine and they look darling but inside they are hurting”.
We don’t know the dark valleys and heartaches people are going through. We only know what they tell us but Jesus knows because He sees what is in their heart. When we are happy, He rejoices with us and when we are sad and hurting, He cries with us. He really cares about us and He wants us to be happy.
Jesus said “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). When we get discouraged, we need to tell Jesus. He will pick us up and carry us until the pain, the hurt and the heartaches go away.
