Often times we are asked by friends “What can I do to help?” I know I’ve asked it myself.
What is the answer?
Usually it is pray for me and that is the best thing we can do for someone and many times the only thing.
But this morning I’m thinking of one more thing…
Don’t give someone your burdens when they have made a knot in their own rope and are trying to hang on!
I know I’ve done this when it’s not the right time. Usually, you can sense when you just need to listen, hold, or cry with another person. There are times for letting them know you’ve been there too.
God gave us two ears and only one mouth, so perhaps we should listen twice as much as we talk.
Listen for another’s cry for help!
