Have you ever watched geese fly south for the winter? By flying in their famous "V" formation, the birds fly 71 percent farther than if they flew independently. The beating wings of the lead flyer create an updraft for the goose directly behind it. Then, when the lead flyer tires out, it drops back and a fresher member of the flock takes its place.
Sick or wounded geese fly inside the "V," where there is the least wind resistance. The others help an ailing goose if it is forced to land. Two other geese follow the sick one down, nursing and protecting their fallen comrade until it either recovers or dies. Only then do they fly off.
God teaches us a lesson through those geese. When we stand together, we are far greater than the sum of our parts. God will often place someone who needs you right in your path. You will speak to someone at work or receive a phone call from an old friend. That little prompting in your spirit will tell you, "This is a time for ministry. The Lord wants me to help and encourage this person."
You should also expect God to send comforters when you are the one who needs comfort. Some Christians are prideful about accepting help. They have learned this not from the Bible but from the world, which teaches independence and self-sufficiency. Let your trial become an opportunity to draw closer to other believers.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Is it difficult for you to accept help from others---even when you really need it? Or are you too busy to even notice when someone is hurting so that you can encourage them? Today, ponder the real life applications of being a part of the Body of Christ when you or someone else is hurting.

Look at the beauty and intricacies in your corner of the Earth; marvel at the genius of the design. How comforting it is to know that the God of creation is concerned with my well-being.
Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
