NOTEWORTHY QUOTE 2
The following quote by Francis Chan was posted yesterday by J. S. Parks on his blog http://www.jsparkblog.com.
“We don’t like getting involved in other people’s problems. Our own problems are messy enough — why complicate things by taking on other people’s junk? But the reason is simple: God calls us to help other people. He created us to function this way. … If you wait until all of your own issues are gone before helping others, it will never happen. This is a trap that millions have fallen into, not realizing that our own sanctification happens as we minister to others.”
~ Francis Chan ~
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of sympathy (pity and mercy) and the God [Who is the Source] of every comfort (consolation and encouragement),
Who comforts (consoles and encourages) us in every trouble (calamity and affliction), so that we may also be able to comfort (console and encourage) those who are in any kind of trouble or distress, with the comfort (consolation and encouragement) with which we ourselves are comforted (consoled and encouraged) by God.
(II Corinthians 1:3-4 – Amplified Bible)
