Caring for others
I’m about to step on some toes for a minute, including my own. When was the last time you genuinely asked someone how you could pray for him or her, and meant it? What about asking a complete stranger? I’m not talking about crazy Bible beating here, but sometimes, we look at someone who voices their hardship, tell them we are praying for them, and go about our day. When we ask someone how they are, do we really want to know the answer, or are we just being polite?Sometimes, we gossip in the form of a prayer request, and sometimes we genuinely gather in the midst of an event or tragedy.
What if, we actually took the time to really examine our prayer lives?
We live in an angry world. With all that is going on in the media, people are bickering back and forth. We, as a society, are angrier than ever. I know what I am writing here is easier said than done, and let’s admit it: evangelism is sometimes terrifying.
Trust me, I’m not only an introvert, but I’m an awkward introvert who panics at the very thought of having to make small talk. What I have learned is that there are small, doable ways that we, as brothers and sisters in Christ, can go about caring and praying for each other.
