Sharing a positive faith

When it comes to people committing suicide, one thing people of faith must not do is try and suggest that they are God. Suicide is not always predictable and therefore detectable. We must understand that we as faith caregivers are still human and therefore limited. Nevertheless, as people of faith we must attempt to brighten the corner where we are. The positive side of faith must be shared. Furthermore, it must be shared in a pragmatic fashion. From an experiential perspective it must be shown that patience with God is always a workable option. One of my favorite remedies for the blues is Psalms 118:24, which declares, “This is the day which the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
