‘Let us be always seeking the ways which lead to peace and the ways in which we can support one another.’ Romans 14:19 (NJB)
Seeking ways to support someone isn’t all that different from playing hide-and-seek. As the seeker, you aim for your goal – to find people. You seek to find people you can support, care for and encourage. Once you’ve ‘found’ them, you support them in whatever way they need. You don’t have to try to fix them; but rather, simply come alongside them and support them by just ‘being there’. They will never forget it!
For today, ask God to give you His eyes that you might see people as He sees them and respond with support and encouragement. You won’t have to look very far, because there are people everywhere who are hoping to be supported. Will you be the seeker?
Question to consider
To whom will you lend your strength today and how will you do it?
Pray that God will give you His eyes that you might see people as He sees them and respond with support and encouragement.
