What comes to your mind when you think of comfort?
What do you long for when you seek comfort? Hugs? Someone to snuggle with? Food? Music? A quiet place?
Life is hard – it doesn’t matter who you are. We all struggle. We all hurt in some way. Young or old. Married or single. But . . . it doesn’t end there, at least it doesn’t need to. We are comforted from God. We are called to comfort others. Reach out that hand to someone today. Throw your arms around someone. Be comfort. Be compassion.
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 receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4NIV
