This coming week, in our small group, we will be discussing chapter 7 of “Love one another, 20 practical lessons” by Don McMinn. The chapter is entitled “Carry One Another’s Burdens. The related Bible verse is:
Carry each other’s burdens
Here are some quotes pertaining to carrying both your own and another person’s burden.
The practice of patience toward one another, the overlooking of one another’s defects, and the bearing of one another’s burdens is the most elementary condition of all human and social activity in the family, in the professions, and in society.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
The fellowship of true friends who can hear you out, share your joys, help carry your burdens, and correctly counsel you is priceless.
Ezra Taft Benson
Carrying a grudge is a heavy burden. As you forgive, you will feel the joy of being forgiven.
Henry B. Eyring
Remember, the burden of sorrow is doubled when it is borne alone.
Every burden is a blessing.
(Tomorrow: Chapter 8 “Forgive one another”)
