Sermons on caring call upon congregants to be better Christians by developing one of the foremost attributes of Christ: his caring for anyone in need in any way. In Psalm 142:4, the author, David, laments, "Look to my right and see; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life." This, however, is not true; the psalm was written while David was in the cave, and due to his prayer and belief, he was saved by God.

Christ helped everyone he met in every way that he could. He fought for social justice, and to improve people's lives in practical ways. He also cared about them in such a way that he wanted to bring them closer to God in order to save their souls.

The Focus of Sermons on Caring

Sermons on caring may focus on the fact that in many Christian denominations, caring and sharing of faith are inseparable. Fundamentalist Christians believe that if you care for someone and they do not know or understand the gospels, you should share your knowledge with them in order to lead them to happiness on earth and in heaven after death. Sermons on caring within that context might want to offer suggestions on how, practically, to implement this ideal in a world where many people do not welcome an intrusion on their spiritual life.

Sermons on caring may also cite any number of stories from the Bible in which someone cared for a stranger or helped when they didn't have to. Daniel and Joseph also make interesting subjects for sermons as they essentially cared enough about the humanity of a person who was keeping them in slavery to help that person with a problem.
