Comfort, pass it on

We are comforted because we are heartbroken. We are comforted because we need a blessing. We are comforted because God loves us. We are comforted to comfort others. While each of the above statements is true, the last is the most crucial one. There is something about comfort that cannot be fully realized until it is shared with someone else. It is that final step in the healing process of grief, disappointment, hurt, and loss. We need to share the comfort we have received, to help those we come into contact with. Comfort, pass it on!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
— 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

Dear Lord, thank you for knowing our hearts, caring about our concerns, and comforting us when we are wounded. Help us to share your grace, mercy, and comfort with someone else today. In Jesus' name Amen.
