Paul adopted a nurturing attitude when teaching people. He knew believers needed the ‘milk of the word’ for spiritual growth. But he also gave special attention to the concerns of those he cared for. We dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children. Paul said, ‘encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God’. As we serve each other, may we serve with the tender loving care of our Savior, encouraging each other in our spiritual journey.
Dear Lord, help me to be sensitive
And caring as I serve others.
Help me to love others tenderly as You
So tenderly love and care for me.
God pours his love into our hearts to flow out to others’ lives.
