Carry Your Own Load While Helping Other's With Their Burdens

"Each one should test his own actions.  Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each one should carry his own load." 
Galatians 6: 4 & 5

Since we are so close to Easter and since today is Palm Sunday I decided to change my monthly schedule and skip one month of my regular series "Living a Childless Life" & "Prayer Warriors - Prayer Proof" - these two series will continue in May.

We are saved by the blood of Christ and therefore have eternal life - this does NOT mean that we can live a life without problems and burdens.  Life is difficult.

Many people think that being a Christian and having your sins forgiven means that you have a "free ride" and that life is without problems - that is so untrue!  People also believe that trusting in God & trusting that He will take care of us means that we don't have to do anything - also so untrue!

Look at the verses above: "one should carry his own load."  What do you think would happen if we didn't have to do anything & if everything was just given to us on a silver platter? - We would become arrogant, selfish & unsatisfied!! - Just look at Hollywood & the extremely wealthy - they are never satisfied & are always searching for something else.  

These "elite" people that I just talked about are often also very lonely.  That's why we (as Christians) are instructed to help other's with their burdens on top of carrying our own load!  See verse 2 below - carry other's burdens & we fulfill the law of Christ.  The law: "love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul & strength and love your neighbor as yourself.

"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."  Galatians 6:2

You will never be lonely if you help those people around you with their hardships.

  1. Great word of encouragement Angie. God will not give any of us more than we can bear but there are times when we can do with that extra help and that little push along the way. So let's continue to be a brother/sister's keeper and the act of helping someone along the way then we can rest assured our living would not be in vain. Happy Palm Sunday and a blessed Easter!
