The Porch2 -Hugs Do A Person Good Hugs Do A Person Good Galatians 6:10 ESV So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. Who doesn't want a hug? Who needs a hug? Parents hug Children (or at least they should); People often hug people when somebody dies. But the truth is that hugs are for everyone. A hug (v.t.) is to clasp or hold closely, especially in one's arms; embrace or enfold, as in affection; to cherish (hold fast) or to keep very close to I ran across a book called The Hug Therapy Book by Kathleen Keating. This book defines a hug as a natural instinct. Based on the scripture above I would like to offer that a hug is a Supernatural opportunity to do good to everyone, especially those who are of the household of the faith. Hug as a noun means an affectionate embrace (has its roots from a Scandinavian word hugga which means to console and comfort. Again a hug is a great opportunity to do good to everyone. Are you one of those people who likes to hug? Are you one of those people who prefers not to be hugged? I was at a Women's Conference and the Speaker had us to stop and hug three ladies and we had to hug for what seemed like an eternity. Now I consider myself a hugger. But I was actually uncomfortable at 1st. By the third person I was able to really accept the no strings attached showing of love and comfort. I am challenging each Neighbor who is listening to this ThePorch2 Podcast to start a hugging ministry. The ministry will take place in your home. For those of you that have older children and this is not a normal part of your family interaction, you may have to become creative. For example you may have to walk up and bear hug them. Husband and wives this should be done not as a prelude to intimacy but to cause each other to feel really cared for and to let them know that you are concerned about them. Hopefully you will share how this Life Assignment caused communication to open up in your family. In this week's episode on ThePorch2,we are speaking about giving and receiving hugs. After the hearing the message you will have to ask yourself if you agree that hugs are beneficial. You will have to see if your family relationships have benefited and improved. If so I would invite you to expand the Life Assignment to your extended family and your Church family. Of course you may need to share this Podcast episode with them so that they can understand this concept known as Hug Therapy. We all need more goodness in our life and we should all want to add more goodness for our Neighbors (Family, Friends and those we meet along the way). How awesome is it that we take such a simple inexpensive gesture and also have the opportunity to be in line with GOD's word (Gal 6:10) above.
