People Need a Hug
Have you ever gotten so caught up in your own little world, in your own problems that you miss the that you miss the faces of the people all around you? That can happen to me if I'm not careful. Many people desperately need a hug, a touch, a word of encouragement to remind them that the Lord knows and cares. Remember, as Christians we are here on this earth to be a witness and to be a blessing to others. We're here to bear one another's burdens and thus fulfill the law of Christ. So let me encourage you to ask the Lord to make you extra sensitive and observant to the people you encounter each day. Make it your practice to look into their faces and look into their eyes. The old adage is surely true, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." God wants to use you to be Jesus with skin to a lost and hurting world because that provides REAL HOPE.
