on skeletal comfort

Notes from church this morning. . .


must meet


One without the other

is like separating

bones from the body.

Genuine care

must meet

God's Word.

Sincere listening

must meet

real prayer.

Acknowledgement of pain

must meet

pointing to eternity.

Care without Christ feels good but lacks the strength of the {bone structure} of the Word of God.

Simply handing Bible verses out to the hurting, without genuine care, is skeletal comfort.

We are blessed by so many who have showed us these truths in real life. . . praying for the wisdom and sensitivity to be this kind of comfort for others.
