Galatians 6:2,5 Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ... for each one should carry his own load. Many are the woes of humankind, and Christians do not seem to be exempted from them. When we read through the Bible, God seems to want us to know that well. Whether current personal problems are due to our personal sins, the sins of other people or to being in a broken world generally, we do agree that all of us face problems. This knowledge seems to increase as we grow older. How then do we respond to such a condition? One way is to feel defeated, grit our teeth and endure such inner struggles till all pain and sorrow will be no more. The other way is to try to understand what God may be saying to us about Him and us, about others and us and about ourselves, so that His abundant life in us will become increasingly real each day. So we pray, so read and so we ponder& May He be our Guide as we plot on along this journey of discovery together. Shalom!
