The People Concerned (1)

Any references to this verse are often attributed to companionship between a man and a woman. However, this biblical verse extends beyond this and applies to any discussion about the plague affecting many people. This plague is called LONELINESS. It is a silent killer that attack the invisible people. I called them invisible because they are more or less regarded as that.

Categories of those suffering loneliness are the,

⁃ People with disabilities

⁃ The elderly

⁃ Migrants

Still, there is another group of people that are often omitted from the list mentioned above because many think they do not fit in. These are women who are victims of domestic violence. How many of those around these women truly understand them? Some may say they do, but, the truth is, do they? Having to speak to someone within and outside their circles may not always offer them the ultimate solution to getting out of the abuse. No one can better understand the victims than the victims themselves. Therefore, as Christians, it is best not to engage in any discussion of offering to pray for these women when what they do need at that instance is the way out of their abusive relationships. Prayer is great but, applying common sense is preferable. When fellow Christians fail to listen and offer practical advice, these abused women experience profound loneliness that can aggravate the situations and lead to brutal consequences.
