Everyone needs a little help sometimes. After all, no one is meant to go through life alone. For Christians, that’s first and foremost where God comes in — He’s always by your side. But after God, comes you. These Bible verses encourage helping others, because if life has given you blessings, it’s important to share those with your community.
BY JAMIE BALLARD AND MARTHA SORREN
Everyday they pass us by
People burdened and heartbroken
Carrying guilt and pride
It affects their very stride.
If guilt were a changing thing
We’d carry it along our necks on a string
It would be the first thing we greet each day
Some people like things that way.
Perhaps one needs to feel something rather than nothing
Instead of feeling free
I wouldn’t like it all to bury me.
Nothing is worse than guilt.
Pride is destructive
It consumes reason and logical happiness
Taking into account nothing of how it makes others feel
It is haughty and foolish in itself.
We pass by someone each and every day
They may be sad or lonely
Maybe they feel defeated and upset
You cannot see that from the outward way.
People tend to hide their faults, their feelings, and their emotions
Some will seek damage like it can fill that void.
Others will exhibit traits of dispeasure
Those we won’t to avoid.
Loneliness can do a number on your thinking
It will break down your ego and leave you to die
Making a mockery of your divine nature
The one that needs others to survive.
Oh! Can a person turn their insides around?
Fill a void, heal a heart, or change their thinking?
Must we pass them by without offering help
This world is for us all, we all have been here.
Don’t help create a void,
Help a heart,
Be the change that changes another’s thinking.
Don’t just pass another by.

Sometimes in life we take a journey, whether right or wrong
This is mainly to serve a purpose, one we often time travel alone
No one can always be there to hold onto our hand
Often we look at what we left behind, never at where we stand
Along those journeys of joy and pain, we fail to notice that others do the same
Something usually gets our attention for a moment, for a while perhaps
But forward we some how manage to go, like trees that ooze their sap
It just is the course of things, the natural order if you will
Some people are held back sometimes, and often that makes them ill
No need to fuss or argue as to why you, why you are less fortunate
It may will be to make you stronger, more pungent
I know sometimes you want to cross the “bridge”, if you will
But don’t be so quick to do that, there could just be a bigger “hill”
Bridges are not meant to be crossed quickly, my friend
They are there to help you accomplish something, or see better, the end
They are not meant to be burned, because from time to time
You will want to crass back over, to help and just remind
Remind yourself that life has different highs, different lows,
I am most certain of this, I really do know
Bridges were not mean to be burnt,
There serve to teach or help us, those things we should of learnt.
