'God of all comfort' - pass it on

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 have received from God.

Who doesn't need comforting words? And who among us do not confront troubles, even daily?

Paul reminded the Corinthians about the comforts that God can provide. But that comfort is not only a balm, but a joy to share. Stroke awareness means not only being conscious of the signs and symptoms, but awareness of the needs that follow.

So take comfort in Paul's words. Receive God's comfort - then pass it along to those in need.
