“It is only in remembering the reality of God’s motherly comfort that we can offer to one another true brotherly comfort.”

May 31st, 2020

In a world where pain, struggle, and difficulty continue to mount, we instincitvely turn in all sorts of directions looking for comfort.  But, we so seldom find it.  What does it mean that God is the "God of all comfort?"  And how can we access that true comfort when the waves of suffering keep coming?  In our passage today God teaches us about the true nature of comfort, and about the ultimate purpose he has for the comfort he so consistently gives us.

Application Questions:

  1. Where, other than God, do you tend to turn for comfort?

  2. Whether you had a particularly comforting mother or not, how is God's comfort uniquely reflected in the God-given comfort of mothers?

  3. How does remembering all of the different attributes we've studied over the past few months bring us greater comfort?

  4. How can you practically help those around you turn to the God of perfect compassion for comfort?
