Please Don’t Give Me a Christian Answer

But then there’s also a place to weep with a hurting friend from the depths of your soul.

God help us to know the difference.

Dear Lord, thank You for being there in my darkest time. I know You are real and You are the only one who can bring comfort to seemingly impossible situations. Please help me speak Your truth to those around me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

TRUTH FOR TODAY:
Romans 12:15-16a, “Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another.” (NIV)

Proverbs 15:23, “A person finds joy in giving an apt reply—and how good is a timely word!” (NIV)
