“I would go to the deeps a hundred times to cheer a downcast spirit. It is good for me to have been afflicted, that I might know how to speak a word in season to one that is weary.” Charles Spurgeon

I’ll bet if we looked around today, we would be able to find someone who needs to be cheered up, someone who needs a shoulder to cry on, someone to celebrate with, or maybe someone who just a little bit of understanding.

I’ll bet we can find that someone within one hour of waking up.

I’ll also bet that it won’t take X-Ray Vision to find them.

All it will take is for us to open our eyes and look.

Then, we just need to open our hearts to that someone. That part takes a little work.

Maybe we can ask Jesus to help us out with that today.

Maybe, He will find us even more than one “someone.”

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”  Acts 20:25

  1. Yes, you only have to sit in a cafe, a shopping mall, in a train or bus and watch people’s faces. Some are so etched in pain, you’re heart can’t help but go out to them. I like your Spurgeon quote; I wish we had more preachers like him these days.
