"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6:2
What are some of the burdens you may need help bearing? Do you feel you have more than a person could carry without some help? Is your heart heavy with some kind of loss or grief? Are you caring for someone that is dealing with Alzheimer’s? God’s intention for us is that we bear one another’s burdens. Paul’s words in Galatians mean that we are to reach out to a brother or sister in their time of difficulty and help them in any way we are able. If we faithfully carry each other’s burdens, then we will be fulfilling the law of Christ. What is the law of Christ? It’s love. The law of Christ is to love one another as Jesus loved us. Bearing the burdens of others is a genuine expression of love and ultimately fulfills everything God wants us to be and to do.
