Action – not Advice
Give assistance, not advice, in a crisis. (Aesop’s Fables)
Writer Charles Swindoll observes: “There is a bond deep within that binds us to one another. It is the glue of authentic love, expressing itself in compassion, fairness, willingness to support, and, when possible, coming to the aid of another. Personally. Without strings attached.” Putting your good thoughts into action, rather than just offering counsel, will often offer the very best help.
And we urge you, brothers and sisters, . . . encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. (1 Thessalonians 5:14)
