When we’re sad, it’s so comforting to know that somebody cares about us.

Particularly when he or she understands what we’re facing.

That’s why it is so important for Christians to demonstrate intercessory compassion to others who are hurting.

That initiative to comfort another speaks volumes about the goodness of our hearts.

And that often leads to open doors for planting seeds of the Gospel.

God is the ultimate Comforter. Here’s how David described Him in Psalm 56:8 —

You keep track of all my sorrows.

You have collected all my tears in Your bottle.

You have recorded each one in Your book.


God knows my burdens, my wounds, my disappointments, my broken heart.

He’s noticed every tear and what prompted it.

God wouldn’t have done this if He didn’t love me.

But He does.

And He’s prepared for me a life in heaven that will forever replace tears of sorrow with tears of joy.

I’m so glad that I have a Father like this. I pray that you’ll embrace Him, too, as your Father.

As always, I love you
