RDTT 051: Helping the Hurt and Broken

In this episode we look at helping the hurt and broken.  We see 4 important keys to helping those who are beat down or crushed.  We learn that often speaking is our first mistake.  We also see the story of Job and how he handled his broken heart.  Each of us have people in our lives who need someone to reach out to them.  We have those we know and care about who are struggling greatly with a broken heart or deep depression.  Come along as we learn how we can be the Christian friend we are suppose to be.

Verses Used In this Episode:

Romans 12:15 – 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

Job 2:11-13 – 11 When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him. 12 When they saw him from a distance, they could hardly recognize him; they began to weep aloud, and they tore their robes and sprinkled dust on their heads. 13 Then they sat on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights. No one said a word to him, because they saw how great his suffering was.

Job 4:5-8 – But now trouble comes to you, and you are discouraged;
    it strikes you, and you are dismayed.
Should not your piety be your confidence
    and your blameless ways your hope?

“Consider now: Who, being innocent, has ever perished?
    Where were the upright ever destroyed?
As I have observed, those who plow evil
    and those who sow trouble reap it.

Proverbs 25:20 – Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day,
    or like vinegar poured on a wound,
    is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.

Jeremiah 6:14 – They dress the wound of my people
    as though it were not serious.
‘Peace, peace,’ they say,
    when there is no peace.

2 Corinthians 1:3-6 – Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 

Hebrews 4:16 – 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Hebrews 7:25 – 25 Therefore he is able to save completely[a] those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

Job 42:10 – 10 After Job had prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. 

Galatians 6:2 – Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 

Philippians 2:3-4 – Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

Matthew 25:34-40 –

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

John 16:22 – 22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.
