Share life and each other’s burdens.
Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
If you think you are too important to help someone,
you are only fooling yourself.
You are not that important.
10 Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. 11 Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. 12 Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
Thank You for Your wisdom and revelation found in Your Word. Thank You for reminding us of our humble station in life. Help us to remain humble and true to who we are in Your Son Jesus Christ. For we know in Your Kingdom, to rise high we must stay low.
Thank You for the joy we have in our hearts and the true delight we have in honor each other.
Father, we thank You for Your Body and all the brothers and sisters who are with us in the Body. Please give us the ability and strength to share one another’s burdens. We know that it is Your desire for us to be united as one in Your kingdom and to do so we must abide in Your Son Jesus. Help each of us rejoice in confident hope, patient in trouble and praying continually.
Enable us to see those around us who need help so we can be Your hands and feet as we serve others! Thank You for giving us both the desire and love to serve joyfully.
In Jesus Christ’s mighty name we pray.
Today’s Transformation Tip
Why does God want us to share each other’s burdens? And how do we share? We share by being a friend. We listen as friends talk and we pray for our friends as well. Prayer is a very powerful tool that God gave to each of us. We have an open heaven and can go before the very throne of God in bold and confident prayer (Hebrews 4:16).
We share each other’s burdens by caring and loving and praying.
This is what God desires for us. He created us to fellowship. He did not create us to be alone in dealing with our problems. We see this in the very beginning of mankind. In Genesis 2:18, God says that it is not good for man to be alone. This is still true today. Do not allow yourself to become isolated because of your problems and burdens. Look to your friends for guidance and support and prayer. We are called to lift one another in our time of need.
Stay in the Light and the Love always,
