Caring for the Needs of Others

We humans have needs, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Sometimes certain needs must be met before others. Sometimes we can’t see or feel some needs over others, and those noticeable or urgent needs may have to be met before we realize we have other needs.

We Christians try to tell others about how God cares and can provide for all our needs. But if we don’t back that up by showing people what that looks like, why should they believe us? A lot of people have a lot of needs, some of which God has fully equipped us to be able to fulfill. Sometimes God cares for people’s needs through us.

Sometimes God might have you buying groceries for someone. Sometimes you might be there to offer a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes you’re there to help get some work done. Whatever God is setting you in place to do, it is to show His care and love for others.

People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. You can say you know the One who cares, but until you show the One who cares your words ring hollow.
