TLC For Eternity

mar 31“The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.” Psalm 37:23-24 (NIV)

When my firstborn son, Thiago, began to walk, I was always around and ready to scoop him up immediately after a fall, to ensure he did not get afraid to stand and take another step in fear of falling. After a few trial-and-error attempts, my little man was wobbling his way around our living room.

Sometimes God gives us spiritual children whose walk starts just as that of a young babe. With the proper attention, care, nutrition, discipline, and practice, a spiritual child will become stronger and be equipped to walk on her own. Conversely, a child who is malnourished and receives poor attention and care will struggle to start on her walk.

Has God placed anyone in your life lately who needs a little TLC from you? A neighbor? A friend? Someone you met at the beauty salon? Someone in your own family?

Spiritual children are just as important in our Christian walk as are our own children. If God has entrusted someone into your care, embrace the task at hand and offer your helping hand to provide the assurance your “child” needs until she is ready to walk on her own.

As for my little guy, it wasn’t long before he was doing little races around the house and even climbing on things he should not climb on, as he was eager to show his newly found ability to move on his own.

If you are someone else’s caretaker, you are likely to have all the necessary skills to ensure their well-being. And chances are, if you look around your own environment, you will find possibilities to do something of eternal value for someone else.
“Dear Jesus, thank You for saving us. Help us, Lord, to have the same love for those who are lost.”

For His Glory
