A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, Jan. 2

Galatians 6:2


Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.


In our culture, strength and self-sufficiency are so highly valued; sometimes it is difficult to get through this shield to be able to help. "Oh, no thanks, I'm fine." "We are all set, thanks anyway." How many times have we heard these responses? They seem to always include the message that those we wish to help can do it themselves. Maybe next time I should just ignore this refusal and find some way to lend a hand. 😇


Holy Lord, we need to help each other. It is not weakness to accept help, either. I am wondering if I should stop seeking permission, but just go ahead and do it. Lord please show me opportunities to serve you more generously by serving others. Amen

Galations 6:2


Share each other’s burdens, and in this way, obey the Law of Christ.


Due to our independent nature, we seldom ask others to help shoulder our burdens—yet this is exactly what Jesus would have us do. We don’t ask for help and if offered, we refuse. In behaving this way we are doing exactly the opposite of what Jesus wants from us. By not sharing, we are also keeping others from doing as Jesus wished—help each other.


Prayer: Gracious God. I will try to accept help when offered and I will also offer help more often and not accept no for an answer. Amen

Galatians 6:2

Carry each another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

Being caring allows you to have empathy for others and to live a life based on affection, love, and compassion for the people around you. It can be tempting to fall into a life of selfishness and to focus only on my own goals and desires, but my days will be far more rewarding if I think about what the people in my life are thinking and feeling. Being caring means providing a listening ear, noticing when someone needs help, and helping your community without asking for a reward.

Lord thank you for reminding me to always remember acquaintances,…
