We sometimes don’t realize how heavy another person’s burden is until we go through a similar situation. Most of us don’t understand the sufferings of others until we experience them ourselves.
We become so involved in our own circumstances, and overlook the needs of those around us. God’s plan for our lives is to bear one another’s burdens. “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2
We show our love by bearing one another’s burdens. There is nothing we can do about the past, but we can strive to do better. Our desire should be to help bear another’s burdens and be a help and a blessing to those going through
tough times. Let’s try to be a blessing and encouragement to others by helping them bear their burdens.
