“And bear the burdens of one another, for in this way you fulfill the law of The Messiah.” -Galatians 6:2
Yesterday was the 3rd annual swap meet for The Gathering Community Church. If you weren’t there…you missed a great time! The kids played in the sprinkler, the guys … and some of the girls played basketball, the food was amazing, the ladies talked and laughed, and yes…were sad at some of the things that were shared; but the fellowship was awesome for all who attended!
This was not only a swap of clothes, shoes, household items, tools, toys, and office stuff; … it was a “swap” of stories, hopes, dreams, concerns, and prayers for each other.
The Bible says that we are to “…bear one another’s burdens.” We are to be willing to listen to our brothers and sisters in the Lord when they are having a joyful time in their lives, but also when things are hard, and they are in need of our help and prayer.
If you want to be a blessing today, and receive a blessing as well…listen…REALLY LISTEN to those around you. Share in their joy.. and.pray for them in their sorrow. It will encourage them, and bless both of you!
