Life is so hectic these days, everyone has their own struggles, their own issues, their own demons. People are losing hope like never before because of the a slow economy, job loss, failed relationships, loneliness, depression etc., Suicide and murder are on the rise because the enemy causes us to feel hopeless, and alone if we are not careful.
We must learn to recognize the signs of depression, anger, sadness etc, and we must make ourselves available as well as approachable, so that anyone who may be in need can feel comfortable with confiding in us, sharing with us, or even venting their frustrations to us.
Understand that people don’t always need advice, sometimes all they really need is a hand to hold in their time of trouble, an ear to listen to how they really feel, or a heart which understands that they are only human and that we all make mistakes. Most of all they must feel as though you won’t judge them. For there is only one judge and He is God the Father of us all.
“For we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
