large_snow_newark_woman1What do we do to help someone who is down?  Do you cheer them up or do you cry with them?

I think every situation is different and you have to pray for godly wisdom, but consider what Solomon says in Proverbs 25:2o:

“Like one who takes away a garment in cold weather.  And like vinegar on soda, is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.”

I think we need to be careful when we approach someone who is discouraged and down.  We don’t want to take away their ‘garment in cold weather.’
