Friendships as Carers
Galatians 6: 9-10
9 So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. 10 So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.
The challenges of caring range from those struggling to get from one client to another in a hurry and in a town they don’t know well, to those looking after incontinent family members who are losing the place. The caring professions are now under such pressure that many feel they have no time to do the job for which they were trained.
It has been said that without Christians the voluntary services of our country would fall apart. Give thanks for those who care, and keep on caring.
Lord God, we are grateful for those who have cared for us, and for all whose care and friendship is a light to our nation. Help them not to grow weary in well doing. May their witness back up the sharing of the gospel in our generation, we ask, through Jesus Christ who cares for the least and the lost, Amen.
