It takes special people to care for the handicapped. Even those who are paid to care for them, are giving their lives to help the helpless. And if anything ever takes patience, it's those who put others first and their own needs afterward. They have the same responsibilities--caring for family and home, that you who have only selves to serve.
I've had occasion to see what goes on at rest homes, for example, and I believe I’m safe in saying that caretakers there, have a Calling to give themselves to this work. They must have a special love for other to do this, and nowhere is it shown in print better than in what I call the Love Chapter in the 13th chapter of 1st Corinthians of the Bible. And I must admit that the wording in the Living Bible even surpasses the way my King James says it. And it closes with, "And now abideth faith, hope, and love--and the greatest of these is love." You must read for yourselves to appreciate it fully.
But this kind of love is not just in controlled places--the world is full of dear ones who can't help themselves. My heart goes out when I see a person pushing a wheelchair; not just for the patient, but for the one helping that person get outside, to be a part of life. In my prayers, I pray double blessings for that helper. And tears come when I even read of a person who requires attention every hour, day and night for medicine and other necessities. Anyone giving his or her life to another in this way, is as close as a person can come to being Christ Himself.
Want an 11th Commandment? John 13:34 says, "A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." It's as near as one can come, to imitating Christ on the cross.
