Word of the Day: Burden

Jan 9, 2022 | Words of Wisdom

BURDEN – something difficult or unpleasant that you have to deal with or worry about; something that causes someone a lot of difficulty, worry, or hard work

The Bible is clear: helping others is right at the heart of the Christian message. As Jesus teaches, loving our neighbors (and especially those hardest to love) is right alongside loving God. Jesus embodies this teaching in countless examples of how he cares for those on the margins of society. Supporting and loving others is so central that Paul describes carrying each other’s burdens as ‘fulfilling the law of Christ’.

Scripture: Galatians 6:2

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”


“If God can turn night into day then He can turn your burden into a blessing.”
