“And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts: after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said” (Genesis 18:5).Text — Genesis 18:1-10
In the words of Leo Buscaglia, “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” Caring is one of the most important and personally rewarding roles a person can play in their lifetime. Interestingly, caring does not just have a positive impact on those who receive care, but also on those who provide care. Caring breeds love reduces depression and leads to higher life satisfaction.
Remember that if you care for others, your relationship with them will be strengthened. In our text, Abraham cared for the three men who appeared in his tent by giving them water to wash their feet and food to eat. That singular act of care brought the good news of Sarah conceiving and bearing a child in their old age. Do not let an opportunity to care for others pass you by, because caring is a special opportunity to gain temporal and eternal rewards.
Caring is a special opportunity
Caring is a mark of love.
