Support The Weak

Key Verse

“Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men” (I Thessalonians 5:14).

Text — 1 Thessalonians 5:12-14


“If you would be interesting, be interested; if you would be pleased, be pleasing: if you would be loved, be lovable; if you would be helped, be helpful,” declared William Arthur Ward. The above quote explains Christ’s teaching on the essential support we must all give to the less privileged around us. Jesus said we should do to others what we expect from them. This underscores the pivotal role of love in human relationships.

The Lord does not encourage idleness or laziness, yet we must not forget to help whenever we come across the needy. Probably on daily basis, we come across the disadvantaged, who are neglected and abandoned by people who could have helped them. Our Christian profession will be called to question if we lack sympathy for the poor, weak and needy. It is on record, that, “Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them and brought the prices of the things that were sold and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need” (Acts 4:31-35).


We must not forget to help


Do to others what you wish they do to you.

Prayer for today

Oh God, make me a helper of the joys of others.
