Broken Hearts – By Matthew Scarborough
A person cries out and cries out and people typically tend to pay it no mind. Sometimes it’s carelessness, and other times it is simply not knowing what to do for the person.
The cries are sometimes loud and sometimes subtle. There’s usually a smile there and a persona that’s saying it’s okay, while pretty much falling apart on the inside.
Some tag it as mental illness and try to toss a pill at it thinking that is the real issue. Some will say a prayer but won’t DO anything beyond that. Some will simply dismiss it and look the other way.
The toxicity of life can only be conquered through love. Yet even our love is often toxic since we fail to grasp any part of it. Look to Christ for the blueprint of love. Not lousy Christians, but actually Christ.
So, pray for your brothers and sisters. Check on your brothers and sisters. And finally, be there for your brothers and sisters. Yes, your brothers and sisters in the human race (sad I feel the need to explain that).

You’ve never walked in that man’s shoes or saw things through his eyes,
Or stood and watched with helpless hands while the heart inside you dies.
So help your brother along the road, no matter where he starts!
For the God that made you, made them too. These men with broken hearts!
