    The Bible encourages us to consider several things when we grapple with loneliness: First, focus on the needs of others. We can choose to turn our eyes toward other people, instead of staying focused on ourselves. And we can look for specific ways to serve them.

    Every day God gives you little opportunities to show kindness to people around you.

    The Bible is full of life instructions. They’re called the commands of God. And he expects us to obey his commands right away. Imagine if a parent tells a child to do something and he or she says, “I’ll think about it.” Wouldn’t there be consequences?
