Here is a wonderful guideline for helping hurting people.

1- We are not required to fix the hurt.
2- Curiosity is not the same as caring.
3-A gentle touch can mean more than a great truth.
4-God understands our questions -and even our anger.
5- A listening ear brings more comfort than the wisest mouth.
6- People don't hurt less because you tell them somebody else hurts more.
7- Words of love are words of encouragement.
8- Small acts of kindness are not small.
9- All of the Scripture we know may not need to be quoted right now.
10- Losing one's balance is not the same as losing one's testimony.
11- It takes time to live our questions all the way to God's prayers.
12- Time alone has no power to heal- God alone does.Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)
