William M. Fletcher

Someone once said that people are a lot like eggs, “They may look tough on the outside, but they’re pretty easily cracked.”

God is fully aware of our humanness. He knows how weak we truly are. That’s why He’s concerned about our every need. He stoops with compassion to treat us with gentle care. He knows how easily we crumble under pressure.

Such gentle caring is the responsibility of all Christians. Paul said: “And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32). A church should be comprised of people who are sensitive to each other’s needs and ready to offer support.
