Scripture: Galatians 6:2 Carry one another’s burdens and in this way you fulfill the law of Christ.
Devotional: As we navigate through the current pandemic, we are finding ourselves living in an unprecedented time in our lifespan. And because of it, many people are carrying heavy burdens. Financial burdens, emotional health burdens, loss of purpose, stress, the list goes on and on.
Perhaps you are feeling the weight of all this as well. Despite that, you can still be an agent of God’s mercy. When you reach out and share the load of another’s burden, chances are, yours will feel lighter.
So if you’ve been finding yourself isolating and withdrawing beyond the appropriate social distancing measures, give thought to how you might reach out and help carry the burden of another. Whether in large ways or small, loving your neighbor and showing them mercy is needed now more than ever.
- Pray for God to lay on your heart one person and one way you can help carry their burden. Then take action and do it.
