Returning or Showing love towards others. Rescuing the perishing, caring for the dying. Many of us have had to take on the additional essential, important role of being an unexpected care giver towards others. It may be helping now a sick person who is bed ridden and needs to be looked after, or a senior parent who is no longer able to fully look after themselves, a person unable unable to fully represent themselves. This role has required us to house sit for them, buy them groceries and goods, even to take them to the doctors, hospitals, cook for them and do housekeeping for them.

(1 Pet 1:7 KJV) That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
(1 Pet 4:12 KJV) Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
I do get a chuckle out of all those people, I call them ostriches, who who think that they are perfect, they have arrived, those who have a measure of success in life and they now falsely start to believe there is nothing left in their own life to work on, to change, all those people who can so readily see all the sins of others but not any of their own. And there are loads off persons like that too these days even even in our own families, neighborhoods as we can all readily know.
The grass may appear to be greener in the neighbors yard but sooner or later we all still do start to have, do need to face our own personal challenges, problems, mental and physical ones, not just the medical ones. Speaking of the reality of the medical problems just ask any senior about the unresolved stress, depressions, mid life crisis, pains, discomforts, that sickness now many persons at least now starting at 45 years old generally tend to experience, have. This is all the result of the consequences of the reality of sin and now us living in a sinful world. These things will not next in Heaven.
Some of the basic reasons people start to have next serious problems in life include-
– Many people do firstly have false, inappropriate personal values, goals or they tend to go to an imbalance, extreme with the legitimate ones.. seen what too much or too little food or the lack of physical exercise now can do on your figure? There are even now too many persons who are still sincerely wrong,
– Denial and Laziness are other unacceptable negative realities some persons do now have. Ever encounter a lazy fellow worker, a lazy nurse, a lazy bank teller, a lazy cop, a really lazy spouse, or a lazy teen ager who does not clean up after themselves?
– The sin of selfishness, and a false pride in oneself, in one’s accomplishments renders now all these rather bad persons also now useless to effectively help themselves or others.
– then there are those too many feeling superior persons, pastors, teachers, professionals, judges, civil and public servants who falsely do think because they do now have a career, do have a professional of governmental status they are even above the law, cannot be now evenaccountable personally
– Then are those power oriented persons who have a perverse management style, despotic ones, the control freaks who practice bullying, dictatorship.
– And of course there are those very naïve persons whop honestly still do think they can make successful changes on their own, believe that can make life better for themselves on their own, can make a better tomorrow and all without God’s help..
James 4:13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. 16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil. 17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Rom 14:7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.

Rom 14:12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Rom 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.
Rom 14:14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
