Have you ever wondered what goes on behind some closed doors? Think about it. How many times have you heard about a tragedy or conspiracy that was going on behind closed doors that no one knew about - or knew about but didn't want to get involved?
There is an old saying which states, "Don't judge a book by its cover." How true. Just because everything looks fine on the outside doesn't mean that it's good on the inside. For example, a human being can be smiling on the outside but crying on the inside. Many a child starts out their day appearing fine on the outside, but on the inside they're in turmoil, agony and pain. They come from picture-perfect families that by all accounts are the perfect example of the complete and happy family when, in reality, the family is suffering and on the verge of collapse.
As human beings, we must do all we can to assist those hurting children and families. We must look for the little warning signs and cries for help. It's not about being a busy body or minding one's own business. It's about helping fellow human beings. As we all know, owning up to one's failures, shortcomings and problems isn't easy. That's why we must get involved. Getting involved doesn't have to be painful or difficult and can prove to be very rewarding. Getting involved can be nothing more than a simple phone call offering assistance in any form, especially prayer.
Some things that go on behind closed doors are illegal, like domestic violence, child abuse and so on, which may at times require police investigation. Many a person's life has been changed for the better because someone got involved or advised the appropriate authorities with a simple phone call. It is sad to think that this very moment somewhere someone is hurting and crying out for help behind closed doors or on the inside, but can't manage to ask for help on the outside.
The tragic stories we hear about on a daily basis are preventable. If you or someone you know is hurting and in need of help, don't hesitate - please call on a friend or your local law enforcement agency for help. Life is too short to be unhappy.
