Thursday, October 15

Let us consider one another so as to incite to love and fine works.—Heb. 10:24.

 

One time when Jesus was in the Decapolis region, people “brought him a deaf man with a speech impediment.” (Mark 7:31-35) Instead of healing him in public, Jesus “took him aside” and healed him. Why? The man’s disabilities may have made him feel uncomfortable in a crowd. Perhaps sensing this, Jesus healed him in private. Of course, we cannot perform miraculous cures. But we can—and should—show thoughtful regard for the needs and feelings of our fellow worshippers. Jesus understood how the deaf man felt and treated him thoughtfully. Likewise, we should show consideration for the elderly and the infirm. The Christian congregation is marked, not by mere efficiency, but by love. (John 13:34, 35) That love moves us to go out of our way to help older ones and those with disabilities to attend Christian meetings and to preach the good news. That is so even if what they can do is limited.—Matt. 13:23. w18.09 29-30 ¶7-8

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

The world is cruel and inconsiderate, especially if you are elderly or have disabilities! They have no time for you!  They will throw you away like trash! Jesus was loving, considerate and patient! He showed love to all no matter what their circumstance! This is the way we should be if we are to copy his example!

I agree... in fact I think the world seems to look right through elderly ones like they're not even there and have no place in society,  it's so very sad. 

 

I worked for many years as a nursing assistant in a care home, I found that they're knowledge and experience especially they're memories were the absolute best.
