Why Do You Look Sad Today?

Why Do You Look Sad Today?

It is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken” says C.S Lewis. Life has its ups and down. We too, at times experience a sense of being emotionally low. But Praise God we do not linger in the same state because our Saviour is alive and He lives in us. People void of this hope go lower, lower and lower and reach a state of helplessness, a state of feeling depressed. Depression is a common mental disorder, characterized by sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, feelings of tiredness, and poor concentration. Depression can be long-lasting or recurrent, substantially impairing an individual’s ability to function at work or school or cope with daily life. At its most severe, depression can lead to suicide.

When Joseph was in the prison, one morning he found that his colleagues who are now his prison mates were sitting with a long face. They looked dejected and hopeless. Joseph walked straight up to them and asked ‘Why do you look sad today’?. This looks like an absurd question. Obviously no one living in a prison would be happy and bright. But Joseph could sense something more than just being sad. He knew that they were greatly troubled. They said “we both had dreams but THERE IS NO ONE to interpret them”. They were in desperate need for a person who would understand their dreams and interpret. Little did they know, that the one they were looking for was right in front of them, in the same cell where they were in.Without delaying much ,Joseph said “Do not the interpretations belong to God? , Tell me your dreams”. He was able to give meaning to their dreams with the help of God whom he served.(Ref Genesis -40)

Have you come across people in office with a bad mood, sad face and lifeless words? Many times we wait for people to come to us with their problems. We might have even prayed ‘Lord let that person come to me and then I will share your love to them’. But today shall we walk up to someone and ask few kind words ‘How are you doing? Why do you look sad today? What’s bothering you? Can I help you? They may be in the same cabin where you are working, in the same department, in the same building or just sitting next to you.They may be thinking ‘THERE IS NO ONE’ to hear my problems. At times they may be hiding their problems from the world. But the Spirit of God who lives within us will help us to discern their state.

Discern their Desperate state. Dare to walk up to the Depressed. Declare the word about the Deliverer.
