The reality of burdens in this life can weigh us down, especially if we try to carry them alone. The Apostle Paul addressed the reciprocal nature of relationships within the body of Christ with regard to sharing burdens. Alistair Begg helps us to understand the reality and directive of humble, gentle burden-bearing, as exemplified by Christ Himself.
2Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. 5For each will have to bear his own load.
6Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches.
