Read Galatians 6:1-2
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2
“Let me help you” were the words I said to a girl in school carrying a heavy backpack. I wanted to lighten her burden of the backpack. Oh, I suppose I wanted to help her, but ultimately motivated by selfishness not as a means to please my Savior.
In Galatians 6:2 we read the words, “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” As Christians, we are called to assist others not for the benefit of self, but ultimately to come along side people and show the care and compassion of Christ.
The “burdens” spoken about in the scripture have nothing to do with heavy backpacks; rather the “burdens” are the heavy weights of sin and suffering that people carry. It is easy to pass by people carrying heavy burdens everyday within the hallway of your school. What can be difficult is actually stopping to offer spiritual assistance. People need to have these burdens lifted as they turn them over to the Lord.
We often don’t lack the opportunity to help others, we often times lack the awareness to help others. Ask the Lord to open your eyes to not only see the needs of others, but also to show God’s grace to meet the needs of others. Students today have legitimate struggles (sin & suffering). You have a legitimate solution found in Christ Who is the ultimate Burden Bearer. If this has helped you, turn around and look to help others.
