“Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6: 2, Holman Christian Standard Bible)
The law of Christ is the law of everlasting Life and of Love. This divine mandate and its spiritual impelling encourage us to do what is right and what truly blesses us and all. It is loving our neighbor and ourselves. This begins with loving God, the very source of all that is good and right.
Let’s fulfill the law as described here. This fulfillment is not about suffering. It is about leaning on God’s own Love and utilizing it. So, we not only carry another’s burden, but we are carried as well, released to God’s strength, confidence, perfect care for all.
We can be eager to help one another, and also to receive help without pride or guilt. We can be grateful that we are fellow brothers and sisters with Christ, and therefore we can willingly come to the aid of one in need and do what is entirely natural to us. We can show love and compassion, knowing that we can’t be burdened by doing good.
The blessing to another blesses us, too, fulfilling the law of Christ, the powerful law of universal Love.
