Judges 18:6

Judges 18:6

Go in peace," the priest replied. "For the LORD is watching over your journey.

Philippians 4:10

Philippians 4:10

I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it.

After Thought

It is such an encouragement when someone shows concern for another. Many feel as if they are invisible and alone as they face various trials and tribulations. Showing genuine concern is an action that restores hope.
