When something is considered therapeutic it carries a benefit for the person partaking in the act. It's helpful for your body and/or mind in some way shape or form. Hydrotherapy is used when you have sprained muscles or a cold or to relax relate and release (Calgon! Take me away!). Counseling is a form of therapy for a troubled mind. A good belly aching laugh is therapy for a frustrated spirit or a heavy heart. And one of my favorites (have mercy!) is retail therapy....there is aroma therapy and massage therapy and a host of others.

Here is a suggestion: "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths but only what is helpful for building others up ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS (not yours!!). Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, slander and every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to each other. Forgiving each other as Christ forgave you." Ephesians 4:29-31
Today think of other ways to exhibit therapeutic behavior to ALL those you cross paths with. Not some or the just the people you like or the people that like you. Challenge your self to overcome those barriers and make someone else's day free of pressure, stress and pain. Choose to relieve someone of his or her ailments.
This challenge can only result in success (for you and the person you are led to bless).
How can you help make someone's day brighter, more safe, and full of love?
Peace, love and blessings!
