How can I express genuine concern for others? I tend to be awkward in social settings but I want to share Jesus’ love with others. What can I do?
Here’s a short list of suggestions that will take you a long way in showing genuine care for others.
Simply remember to C.A.R.E.–
CONNECT with people by talking to them. It is easy to forget they often as uncomfortable as you are. Introducing yourself is a good way to start a conversations.
ASK others questions about themselves. Everybody likes to talk about himself or herself, if you show genuine interest. Ask about their background, job and family. Share similar information about yourself.
RELATE to their lives in a credible, meaningful way. Introduce them to people with similar interests or situation.
ENCOURAGE them. Affirm their worth, identity, and purpose. Make sure they know you’d love to get to know them more.
