So this week my daughter came home to tell me a story of a student in a class that 
she is a TA, teacher's assistant in. 
She expressed concern to me because the student had missed some school and was beginning to fall behind in the class. 
As she is telling me this story I can see the look of concern and worry on her face. I asked her if the teacher had noticed and she said "yes" but she did not know if the student was getting the help that they needed. 
So I asked her "what do you think can be done?" 
Can I just say I LOVED her answer....
she said "well mom, I don't want to criticize and judge why the student hasn't been at school I have no idea what is going on.... I just hate it when people do that. I think I could talk to the teacher and offer to tutor the student outside of class..."

Then she said the magical phrase again.......
"I hate it when people criticize but offer no solution or help."


Does our concern ever get beyond 
the whispered words that we share with a friend? 

 or 
Do we just find ourselves gossiping about what we think should be done filling our conversations with assumptions and "they shoulds"?
or 
Do we dare to confront our fears of inadequacy and offer our help.......

 Examine the gossip, dig under it 
you will see it, yes..... it is the
underbelly of insecurity 
an insecurity that says:
What can I do?
What do I have to offer?

What do I have?

I have hands......
to make a meal,
pick up groceries,

I have kind words...
through a text,
a message on facebook,


I have time....
invite a child over for play,
take a person to coffee



See the truth of God's Word for us
 is that we are equipped. 

equipped: prepared with the necessary supplies and prepared for an activity or problem.

Alone, we can't do it
 but with Jesus 
We Can

"Jesus equips us with every good to do His will"
Hebrews 13:20
