Different types of loneliness invade our lives. Standing at the gravestone of a loved one, we feel the pang of separation. When there are no messages on our cell phones, we long to hear the voice of someone who cares. Whether you’re a pastor, ministry leader, spouse, parent, or child, you have likely experienced loneliness somewhere along life’s journey. If you ache with loneliness, remember that you’re in good company. The Bible gives abundant examples of lonely saints.
This week, you may encounter a lonely person hiding behind a smile. If you were that person, how would you hope to be greeted? Friendship is a sure antidote to a lonely soul. Be cheerful medicine to someone this week.
