Looking Beyond Ourselves

Often we can easily get so caught up in what is going on in our own lives that we forget that there are always things going on in the lives of those around us too. This was highlighted to me in recent months...

Since having an accident and paralysing my legs approximately four months ago, I could have quite easily forgotten about everyone else around me and thought that I was somehow ‘special’ and that my circumstances were the only ones that mattered. However, through various conversations with people, I was reminded that this is not the case... A couple I know have just lost their son to cancer, a business colleague’s house has been destroyed by fire and the list goes on.

God began to speak to me about the importance of looking beyond myself and being sympathetic to people around me too. People are always going to have ‘stuff’ going on in their lives, big and small, and I believe this is an opportunity to really ‘love others’ as we support and encourage each other through these times. Jesus always made time to stop, listen and care for others and I believe He calls us to do this too.

Bless ya,

Steven King
