We all have opportunities to show caring to others in our daily lives. Caregiving is not limited to the professionals. Whenever we reach out in empathy to someone in need we are caregivers. We may stand beside cheer to a lonely person. We may allow a person to express feelings about a job loss or the agony of a divorce. As a member of the body of Christ, "if one part suffers, every part suffers with it" (1 Cor. 12:26). If we listen through the pain, walk with the person through troubled times, and present a word of hope in Christ, we offer Christian caring.
