2 Corinthians 1:3-4 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comfort us all in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
We learn so much when we go through loss, or hardship... one of the things God teaches us at times like this is compassion for others... God sends people with the perfect words... people with wisdom that somehow gets us through the next step and the next... and God expects us to use that wisdom to help others... Just as God helped us.... this is one way that we can be a witness of God's great love. So the next time you are urged to go to the funeral home, or the hospital... or to carry a plate of food to someone remember to act on that feeling... this may just be the time that God wants to pull from your storehouse of knowledge... this may be the time that you are the only person that has the words that somebody needs... this could be the very time God is using you to be the comfort in somebody's time of need... maybe you are afraid you won't have the right words... so many times when we walk in the room and somebody know that we have been through that same situation our mere presents is what bring great strength... Be the somebody that was there for you for somebody else.
