Sharing Is Caring

When most of us were young, we were taught (sometimes forced) to share. As we got older, we began to share less when it became our choice. Sharing is a way to value another person. It sees their situation and says you care enough about them to give them something that is yours. Did you know that sharing is Scriptural? God calls us to look out for the needs of others and to share spiritually, emotionally and financially with what we’ve been given. We’ve all had times when we’ve been in need. We can identify with those who are in need with something we have to share. If you start looking for people to share with, you won’t have to look very far. Be a blessing today.

Here are some Bible verses on sharing.

1. Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2 NLT

2. For I long to see you so that I may share with you some spiritual gift, to strengthen and establish you; that is, that we may be mutually encouraged and comforted by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.

Romans 1:11-12 AMP

3. Learn to generously share what you have with those who ask for help, and don’t close your heart to the one who comes to borrow from you.

Matthew 5:42 TPT

4. Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.

Proverbs 22:9 ESV

5. We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.

2 Corinthians 1:7 NLT

The Importance Of Sharing

I once heard someone say, “When you share your grief, you cut it in half. When you share your joy, you double it.” Those words have always stuck with me. When we’re joyful, we’re always looking to share it with someone. However, when we’re sad, we tend to become introverted and try to handle the burden all on our own. Instead of verbalizing it, we internalize it thinking we’re the only one who feels this way. We believe the lie that no one can empathize because no one has gone through what we’re going through. It’s important to break away from that lie and find someone we trust to share our sadness with.

As Christians, sharing should be a part of our culture. The Bible tells us to confess our sins one to another. Why do we need to do that if God is the one who forgives? Because God designed it so that we would find healing by sharing our struggles. There are so many positive things that happen when we share whether it’s our feelings, our struggles or even our belongings. God created the Church so we would have a safe place to share these things. From the beginning, God said that it wasn’t good for man to be alone. He wants us in community where we can share and help each other out.

Here are some Bible verses on sharing.

1. Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace.

Ephesians 6:15 TPT

2. Share your belongings with your needy fellow Christians, and open your homes to strangers.

Romans 12:13 GNT

3. Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2 NLT

4. But even if I am being poured out as a drink offering on the sacrifice and service of your faith [for preaching the message of salvation], still I rejoice and share my joy with you all. You too, rejoice in the same way and share your joy with me.

Philippians 2:17-18 AMP

5. Now our hope for you is unshakable, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings you will also share in God’s comforting strength.

2 Corinthians 1:7 TPT
