Thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, that He is our Father and the source of all mercy and comfort. For He gives us comfort in our trials so that we in turn may be able to give the same sort of strong sympathy to others in theirs. (2 Cor 1:3,4; J.B.Phillips)

Like many have done so often, we’ve memorized different verses throughout our days, whether at Bible School, from a friend or relative, through a song, or maybe even because of a tough circumstance. Well, go with me here…

In the 2nd Book to the Corinthians, verses 3 & 4, Paul brings home the deep, deep importance of comforting and helping others. Soak in this:  Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. (2 Cor 1:3,4; NIV)
