Our Pastor had a concert today at a MLS Soccer game and we got to go. It was a great time to be with family and friends and we had a blast. By the time it was over though we were exhausted and no one wanted to walk to the car. Josiah quickly climbed into the stroller as soon as it was opened. I was carrying the baby and Samuel had Matthew. Until he thought to put him on Josiah’s lap.
Josiah “carrying” Matthew made it easier for all of us. It was easier for me to just carry Caleb. It was easier for Samuel to just push the stroller. It was easier for Matthew to be carried. And it was even easier for Josiah since he wouldn’t have to walk. That’s how it’s supposed to be in the body of Christ. We are supposed to carry each other. And even though you may think it will be difficult, in the end it helps and makes life easier for us all.
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
