WORTH EMULATING 05: COMFORT


This week the "Worth Emulating" Focus Word I have chosen is COMFORT. 
I chose this word for two reasons.  
1. Christ has literally felt every single pain and affliction we will ever experience. He knows exactly how we are feeling and because of this he knows exactly how to comfort us. We just need to be willing to have faith that he can and will and then turn to him for that comfort. 
2. If we are trying to become more like Christ we too need to learn to comfort others. Instead of turning away from someone who is struggling, we need to be willing to love and comfort them in their time of need. One of the best ways to become more like Christ is by showing Christlike love and compassion. This includes comforting those who stand in need of comfort.  Often we are the ones who stand in need of comfort. YOU are deserving of this comfort and you can and will receive it if you turn to the Savior. 

J O U R N A L  P R O M P T S: 
1. When have you needed comfort in your life?  
2. How have you been comforted in times of need?  

3. Who can you reach out to and comfort today?
