Carrying Our Burdens
A few weeks ago my riding lawn mower stopped working. I quickly exhausted my limited knowledge of what could be wrong and knew it needed to go to a mechanic. To get to the shop I would also need a way to transport it. I wasn’t sure if it would fit in the bed of my mid-size truck so I retrieved a tape measure and discovered the mower wouldn’t quite fit. To get it where it needed to go I would need help. I called a friend who graciously offered to bring his trailer over this morning and transport it for me.
Reflecting on the blessing of my friend’s generosity I also thought of the truth that we need each other to sometimes help us carry our burdens. Being willing to bless one another by offering what we can, when we can and doing all we can, we’re able to get where we need to go… together.
