What Would Love Do? Part 5: “I was sick and you visited Me.”

Visiting The Sick

We continue this week looking into the question, “What would love do?” One of the things love would do is “visit the sick”. We have all been sick. We know how unpleasant it can be. We are invited to offer comfort and support to others by showing up when they are not well. The act of being present with someone who is not well does so much good. 

We are also told that all of us can be in states of spiritual sickness as well. This happens when we get caught up in false thinking or hurtful behavior. We are told that when this happens we can be robbed of good health on an internal level. It can warp our perspective and at length introduce us into states of sadness or depression. We can be a support to others when this happens by showing up (visiting the sick). By taking time to listen or spend time with someone who is having a hard time we are doing “what love would do.”
