Be a Helper

A mother converses with her young daughter

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”—Genesis 2:18 (NIV)

This scripture contains the first “not good” in the Bible. God wants us to live in fellowship with a community of others along life’s journey. Each one of us is a helper, mentor or encourager to someone else.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, help me to bring strength and encouragement into the lives of those around me.
