The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is affecting every one of us. Following are some ideas on how to respond:
#1 Remember Jesus’ words. “Do for others what you would have them do for you,” and “Love your neighbor as yourself.” These unambiguous directives are the key to dealing with this crisis. For most of us, that means social distancing and sharing of resources. For others, such as those in the medical community, great sacrifices may be required.
#2 Deal with your fears. Several years ago we published an article, Controlling Fear with Scripture, in a magazine. Un-addressed fears can paralyze a person. You can access the full article at the following link: Dealing with Fear
#3 Strengthen your faith before you need to. Everyone is going to suffer during this crisis. In our Life-Skills mini-book More Than Ordinary Faith – Why Does God Allow Suffering? we explain that the time to prepare is before suffering causes our faith to waver. We give the biblical reasons for suffering and ways to cope. You can purchase a copy (paperback or Kindle) at: Dealing with Suffering
Or, if finances are an issue with you, we will give you either the Kindle or ePub versions. Just contact us at Contact Kit and Drew or by any other means.
Finally, “Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.” I Thess 5:11
In Our Lord,
