BCC Staff Note: The BCC Weekend Media Resource is designed to alert our BCC audience to valuable new resources that we have added to our site. Today’s resource is from Collin Mattoon: A Guide to Counseling the Chronically Ill.
Someone you know likely suffers from chronic illness, whether you are aware of it or not. Maybe you picked up this booklet because you want to help these individuals. Maybe you searched for this resource because you want to be prepared for the day someone you know finds out that they have a chronic disease. Regardless of your situation my hope is that this resource is a help to you as you seek to counsel the chronically ill. Where do we start?
This paper is presented in three sections. The three sections give specific ideas on how to encourage, help, and rebuke someone with a chronic illness. An appendix is also included that lists scriptures that you may want to consider using with the ill person.
- Section 1 – How may someone with chronic illness need to be encouraged? (Pg. 5-18)
- Section 2 – How may someone with chronic illness need to be rebuked? (Pg. 19-28)
- Section 3 – How may someone with chronic illness need to be helped? (Pg. 29-34)
- Appendix 1 – Rebuke, encourage, and help the sufferer with the following scriptures. (Pg. 35-42).
