Davidisms: Be a Walking ICU to Those Who Are Hurting

We all have hurting people around us. This world is broken. Not operating as God originally intended.

We have broken bodies. We are in broken relationships. We live and work with broken people.

So then, how are Jesus’s followers to live in this broken world?

First, we are all called to serve others (Mark 10:45). We are to raise up our spiritual antennae to sense the hurting people around us.

To be a walking ICU to those who are hurting.

ICU? Think about it. Medical personnel are always on high alert. Their ears are attuned to every need around them. Every strange beep and sound. And they respond immediately, with urgency and compassion to those in need.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted” (Matthew 5:4).

As Jesus comforts those in need, may we do so as well. His followers and disciples, living as he lived. Noticing and caring for those who are hurting.

Be a walking ICU to those around you throughout your day.
