“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2 (NIV)
When people in our community are struggling, we should be able to empathize even if we haven’t experienced the same type of struggle. God doesn’t want us to have a selfish mentality. During difficult times, our acts of kindness prove to people that we care. We also prove to God that we are willing to help our fellow brothers and sisters. There are many ways to be of service to the community. We can help elderly neighbors with household chores, serve as tutors or peer mentors to children and teenagers who are struggling with their academics or their behavior at school or visit the sick at the local nursing homes. Anything we decide to do will mean so much to the person we are helping.
