While we are helping others, we find that our own troubles suddenly seem lighter. “…remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35. “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32.
