Just then a woman walked out of my doctor's building and seeing my predicament came over and asked to help. She offered to get in and drive while I pushed, but my pushing wasn't enough. What are we going to do? Just then a man walked up the sidewalk and seeing our predicament came up and offered to help push. Between her driving and our pushing the car came right out and I make my appointment.
Those two people had carried my burden. My trouble became their trouble. They had reached out and helped and my burden was overcome. As Christians we need to operate like that. Perhaps we can send a card, or make a meal, or pray with them on the phone, or give them some money, or share our experiences with the burden, or watch their kids while they go to an appointment or give them a ride. The list goes on. Make someone's trouble easier to deal with. Carry each other's burdens.
