TENDER LOVING CARE

READ:
1 Thessalonians 2:1-7

But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:
-1 Thessalonians 2:7

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Job 25-27
Acts 12

Max runs a small farm as a hobby. Recently when he checked on the cows he is raising, he was surprised to see a newborn calf! When he bought the cattle, he had no idea one was pregnant. Sadly, the mother cow had complications and died shortly after her calf was born. Immediately, Max purchased some powdered milk so he could feed the calf from a bottle. “The calf thinks I am its mother!” Max said.
The tender story of Max’s new role with the calf reminded me of how Paul likened himself to a caring mother in dealing with the believers at Thessalonica: “We were gentle among you,” he said, “just as a nursing mother cherishes her own children” (1 Thessalonians 2:7).
Paul adopted a nurturing attitude when teaching people. He knew believers needed the “milk of the word” for spiritual growth (1 Peter 2:2). But he also gave special attention to the concerns of those he cared for. “We dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children,” Paul said, “encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God” (1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 NIV).
As we serve each other, may we serve with the tender loving care of the Saviour, encouraging each other in our spiritual journey (Hebrews 10:24). – Dennis Fisher
Dear Lord, help me to be sensitive and caring as I serve others.
Help me to love others tenderly as You so tenderly love and care for me.


God pours His love into our hearts to flow out to others’ lives.
