Bearing BurdensSeries: Love One Another
Scripture Reading: Galatians 6:1-5
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” —African Proverb
The first time I saw the above quote, I think I was at a race of some kind. I remember thinking, “That sounds cute, but I’m not sure why they’re wearing that at a race.” As I’ve been in several racing events since, I totally get where the quote is coming from. Whether you are concerned about your time or not, running or competing with someone is a far better way to run.
Why? Making it through the event and having from each other is far more important than running alone and trying to get a good time. Most of us, whether you are a runner or not, understand this. A renovation at the house, a big job on the farm, an important project at work: all of these are made easier when we do it with someone else.
So why should the church be any different? The Christian life lived well is not easy. It should come as no surprise that God designed the church to be a support system for each other as we walk the road of life together with God. This morning, we’ll look at the “One Another” of bearing each other’s burdens, how we’ve failed, and why it’s important to be better.
