Word 4 Today September 9, 2011

PRACTICAL COUNSELING

In order to be a benefit to others, we must learn to cultivate God’s love and concern for those in need.  Ask the Holy Spirit to speak through you then listen to the person talk, and try not to talk too much.  It is best to let that person come up with his or her own solutions.  Don’t be controversial; this will just result in tension between you and the person seeking help.  People need to feel you are sincerely concerned.  Our job is to develop a feeling of trust and expectancy.  “Casting all your care upon Him; for He cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:7

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Lord, we pray with all persons in need.  Help them to repair the lines of communication with the Physician who can heal all of their problems.

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

Love and acceptance are more important than our advice.
