We have arrived at pillar #5: Caring. Pastor Burcham will deliver the message this weekend as we try and hear from God concerning the call to be caring.

There are a number of instances when Jesus had compassion on people. He saw them as sheep without a shepherd, he wept over Jerusalem, and took the time to heal the sick. The deepest extent of his care for us came when he went to the cross. He knew we were like sheep without a shepherd. He has come as our shepherd, we listen to his voice and he cares for us. We know that he cares for us and we are called upon to cast our cares on him.

But as followers of Jesus Christ we are also called to care for one another, whether it is the example of the early church caring for the widows and poor, or to Paul admonishing us to care for all people, especially those of the Christian faith. When we give of ourselves it is part of who a Christian is called to be.

Extending out of our relationship with God in which he cares for us, what is one act that you can do today to show that you care? It might start in your own home, maybe it is with someone at work. Share with us some ideas so that we can spread the word.
