Good News in a Bad News World
"Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ."1
"For the first time in her life, Western Oregon University's Sara Tucholsky not only hit a home run in a game against Central Washington University, but she hit it over the fence.
"She had passed first base and was on her way to second base when she collapsed. Something had happened to her knee and she couldn't run. No one on her team could help her around the bases because if they touched her, she'd be out. That's when her opponents from Central Washington picked her up and carried her around the bases and across the home plate. 'My whole team was crying. It touched a lot of people,' says Tucholsky."2
I don't know if any of these kids were Christians or not, but what an incredible example for all of us. In doing likewise we certainly would be helping to fulfill "the law of Christ."
Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me always to be available to bear another's burden when his or her load is too heavy to bear alone. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."
1. Galatians 6:2 (NKJV).
