Needs. There are many. And needs are unique to each of us. Some need lots of people and social relationships, some need to have other control them and vice versa, some need love and affection in heaping amounts. Still others, will be able to communicate their needs and others not so much. I watched a show in which a beloved character was hurt very badly and was fast approaching the end of life but one of the doctors was able to perform a life-saving technique that was beyond risky. She did it and the other doctor started thanking Jesus and was overjoyed by the fact that she did it. She went over to her and said “I know you’re not a hugger, but I need you to hug me back right now.” This other doctor is not an outwardly loving person but in that beautiful moment she went out of her comfort-zone and responded to someone else’s need for demonstrated love.
How can we meet the needs of others?
Romans 12:13 Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
