A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. (Steve Maraboli, military veteran)

Caring for the physical needs of a wounded person is a priority for first responders. And often, it calls for weeks or months of follow-up treatment as well. But there also may be lingering needs that are beyond the purely physical. We must continually offer gentleness, kindness, and understanding—what we sometimes call TLC, to overcome some of the deep hurts that meds alone will not cure.

You must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience (Colossians 3:12). If you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. (Romans 12:8)
