Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2
Help someone! WHO HAS TIME FOR THAT? The world tells us to strive, do more and be more, and we find there aren't enough hours in a day to accomplish what we need. We go to bed late and get up early, and we're tired throughout the day. Living with a cup half full and living on vapors.
This isn't want God intended for us. Jesus is the King of Salem, which is the King of Peace and Righteousness. Jesus wants us to have peace in this life and the next. He wants us to bear one another's burdens. He wants us to live in community: sharing in joy together and sharing in sorrow too.
I have discovered that turning to Jesus when there isn't enough time in a day, somehow helps me reach my goals. I took God up on His Holy Word. Instead of rushing out the door to begin the endless tasks of the day, I stayed in bed and read my bible longer. Instead of worrying about my troubles, I laid them at the feet of Jesus and focused on my friends and families problems. Instead of worrying about how I looked, I worried about how to make others feel valued by me. In all these ways, I put the Kingdom of God first and He blessed me. God helped me reach my goals by taking my burdens away, extending my deadlines, or softening the hearts of my task masters. God always made a way for me to reach my goals, but I put His interests first. God can be trusted. Amen
