God’s care—in and out of care homes

Over the last several months, news reports have highlighted concerns about workers and residents in care and nursing homes. Lack of protective equipment for the staff and concern that the elderly are more susceptible to COVID-19 have made people fearful. Our gratitude for the unselfed dedication of those caring for others during this time is immeasurable, and we can support them and their patients in our prayers.

These facilities should be safe sanctuaries, places of shelter, love, and healing. In my prayers, I started to think about the words care and home. To care is to provide for what someone needs, for what is necessary for the health, welfare, and protection of another. The well-loved Psalm 91 promises that God is our shelter and safe place, reassuring us that we can place all our trust in Him to care for His people, and that those who trust in Him find safety and protection.

We'd love to hear from you!
