Far too often, Christians are like the man who met an old friend and asked, “How’s everything with you?” The other man said, “Terrible. You know my wife just died.” The first man said, “Well, it could have been worse.” We cannot be that indifferent. The Spirit of Christ demands that we genuinely feel the hurts of our brothers and sisters and work to alleviate them.
