David went out to meet them and said to them,
“if you have come to me in peace to help me,
I am ready to have you unite with me.”
1 CHRONICLES 12:17 (NIV)
Quite often God entrusts His great love to the gentle touch of a human hand, the familiar sound of a voice. And that’s only one reason why we need each other so desperately. Here are a few more:
I need your tears to validate mine (Romans 12:15).
I need your silence to acknowledge the depth of my pain (Job 2:11-13).
I need your hand to reach down and lift me up when I fall (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10).
I need your willingness to be a vessel through which God can speak (1 Peter 4:11).
I need your example of servanthood to encourage me in my spiritual journey (John 13:3-15).
I need your wisdom when I’m in a difficult situation (Exodus 18:14-27).
I need your perspective to sharpen my own (Proverbs 27:17).
I need your loyalty when others betray me (1 Samuel 20:1-17).
I need your advocacy when I face the unknown (1 Kings 5:1).
I need your prayers even when I can’t pray for myself (Ephesians 6:18).
And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need.
These are the sacrifices that please God.
HEBREWS 13:16 (NLT)
On the journey with you,
