Philippians 4:10
Your Care

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

There are a lot of ways we can show our care for other saints
It is part of spiritual family life to be aware of needs and wants
So those who for some reason find themselves in narrow straits
Can be reasonably comfortable while for relief they watch and wait.

Sometimes you may have reached out to be some kind of help
And then you find circumstances hindering or you’re in need yourself
Because there may be limitations that stop us at one time
Doesn’t mean we shouldn’t prepare to meet their needs again.

We do not really know the needs a lot of people have
Some we do and meet them, for others’ need we should save
Because the God who cares for flowers and birds can reveal to me
In His own time and by His own way, the kind of help I can be.

In the meantime it is important for me to be aware of the Spirit’s prompting
And it is perfectly right for me to prepare for coming needs that I might meet them
If the sincere care for others is there and by God’s help I am ready
When the opportunity comes to show my care, my cupboard is not empty.

It is well for me to determine the difference between needs and wishes
And then set aside some of what God gave when He has blessed us
A lot I do not need at once, but no doubt darker days are coming
For other people beside ourselves who God through us is supplying.

Be ready and willing to show your care, saints all around this world
Go through times of serious hardship by being faithful to the Lord
The Lord can open doors to help; it may be in a moment of time
And through your care some needs are met, and God’s grace brightly shines.

“Father in heaven, I am thankful to Thee for supplying our needs through blessings that I have come through others. Give us the understanding to know how and when to pass on these blessings to others who serve Thee and are in need. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
