Search and Rescue—Dolphin Style!

Search and Rescue—Dolphin Style!

Did you know that a dolphin only sleeps with half its brain? That’s right! Staying “half-awake” keeps dolphins safe from predators and allows them to breathe while they are sleeping.

As cool as that is, there’s something even more fascinating about dolphins that you should know. Dolphins take care of each other when they are injured! A few years ago, a group of dolphins off the coast of South Korea formed a “raft” with their bodies to carry a female that had been wounded. Now that’s friendship!

Just as dolphins work hard to help each other out, God calls us to take care of each other as well. Do you know someone in a nursing home whom you could visit? Or, if your younger sister or brother is sick, could you read to them or bring them some soup?

In Galatians 6:2, the apostle Paul tells us, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” To bear someone’s burden means to help them out when they are sick or hurting.

How can you bear the burden for someone else today?
