Help the weak. (Romans 15:1)

I don't think we always realize that we have a responsibility. Not just to ourselves but others also. 

 

Romans 15:1

English Standard Version (ESV)

 1   We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.



This isn't an every man for himself kind of life. If it was, Jesus would've basically shrugged us off and said "It's a dog eat dog world out there. Sucks for them."

But no. He loved us, to the point of dying for of what we did. And that's how we should love others. 1 John 4:19 says "We love because he first loved us." How can we do that by only caring for ourselves? We need to help our struggling brothers and sisters. We're all weak at times, and we all need someone to lean on.
So why not be that person for them?

Take their burden on your shoulders, help them up, dust them off, and get them ready for the road ahead. That's one of our jobs as Christians. To help heal the wounded and to help strengthen the weak.

So I wanna challenge you guys to look out for someone that's hurting, mentally, spiritually, or physically, and help them through it.  
Don't be pushy and try to force your way in, some people don't want help and that's perfectly fine. But always be on the lookout for someone who does.

Have a great day and God bless! :D
