Today I want to encourage you to pick someone up who is down, who has fallen and needs a hand up. I know you know someone. Maybe all they need is a kind word. Maybe they need a hug. Maybe they need someone to say ‘I have been there and you will come through this.’ Maybe they need you to take them to lunch and simply let them vent, there is nothing wrong with that, it does not mean they have given up on God, they are simply hurting, once that hurt is released they will feel better. Help them up.

The longer I live the more I see what matters and what doesn’t. Helping others matters. We should never be too busy to stop and help someone up. We should never been in too much of a hurry to stop and lend a hand. And we should always remember the words of Jesus, as we do it for them, we are doing it for him. Let’s be a blessing to others and to Jesus.
