Be Jesus to Someone

Life is messy. I have a friend coping with divorce. Another friend who’s depressed. I have a relative struggling with dementia.

While I’m a fixer and want to make things better for them, I am powerless to help them cope with what life has dealt them.

I can’t make the pain disappear.

So I do what I can. I listen. I hug. I have lunch with them. I share what I’ve learned from my struggles. I am there when I can. I offer encouraging words to assure them they aren’t alone.

I do what I can to love them and share God’s love. At least I hope I do. I’m not always sure that comes through, but that’s where my heart is anyway.

How do you show Jesus love to those hurting?

What can you do today to be Jesus to someone?
