Lori Scott & Tynea Lewis

When you remember
and ask about
and show interest in
a small thing I mentioned
the other day in passing,
I know I can trust you
to help me deal with
the big things
I left unsaid.

—Lori Z. Scott


NO SMALL THING: People who share their hearts with me encourage me to do the same. When we are open about the struggles we face, people often feel safe enough to share with us the pain they are experiencing.

A friend loves at all times,
and kinsfolk are born to share adversity.
Proverbs 17:17 (NRSV)

Are you being honest with people about the ways God has walked with you through difficult situations? This week, find the courage to share something from your life that could help someone else. Your honesty can help to deepen your relationships and can point others to God.
