You are not the only person who is struggling today. Others around you are hurting too. Often, there are people around us, close friends even, who need our help and we don’t even realize they are anxious. Be extremely attentive to the silent cries of someone close to you who may be drowning in helplessness, in loneliness, or in circumstances that have gotten out of control. Your concern and care for that person may be their only recognized hope.
The Bible says that when we are helping people who are struggling, we should do so with gentleness and humility. This also means to provide assistance quietly, without talking about the person, and without putting ourselves forward or comparing their situation to our own. When rescuing someone, the attention should always be on the person in need.
