The Helping Hand

Our world is divided. Technology can fill our brains with facts, but it lacks the distinctive touch of compassion. People need people. We need each other. The warmth of companionship removes an empty spot in our lives. While computers have voices, their sound is cold and factual, lacking the personal touch of sincerity.

God created Adam. But Adam needed Eve. Someone to talk to, someone to share time with. Adam was lonely. God intervened and gave Adam a helper—Eve. The two could walk and talk together. Enjoy each other’s company. Everyone desires companionship, someone to relate to.

Keyboards and screens can reveal knowledge but can’t convey emotions. Videos can’t bandage your heart and hug you when words aren’t necessary nor smile with your heartwarming approval.

God knew what He was doing when He created families—bone of our bones (Genesis 2:23), our DNA with flesh and blood, a heart that feels like yours. Technology cannot do that. The hard drive can store info but doesn’t have the individualized touch of love nor can it offer the sympathy that reaches out when you fail, get laid off, are in the hospital, or standing beside a grave.

There’s something still missing from all the advances of mankind in making life easier and faster—the warmth of the closeness of another individual. All our machines, computers, and luxury items are no match for your family, neighbor, or friend. God made you unique. Someone endowed with a conscience to do what is right for the less fortunate. An individual needing encouragement.

The opportunity in front of you is a gift from the Almighty. Make the best use of it.
