Burden Bearers

Exodus 18:22
And let them judge the people at all times. Then it will be that every
great matter they shall bring to you, but every small matter they
themselves shall judge. So it will be easier for you, for they will bear
the burden with you.

Burden Bearers
Andrew C. Davison wrote about an encounter with Dr. Albert Schweitzer at
Lambarene, on the banks of the Ogowe River. It was about noon and the sun
was beating down mercilessly as a group walked up a hill with Dr.
Schweitzer. Suddenly the doctor strode across the slope to where an
African woman was struggling with a load of wood for the cooking fires.
The 85-year-old doctor took the entire burden and carried it up the hill
for the relieved woman. When they reached the top of the hill, someone
asked Dr. Schweitzer why he did things like that, implying that in that
heat and at his age he should not. Albert Schweitzer pointed to the woman
and said simply, "No one should have to carry a burden like that alone."
That was Moses’ problem—he was trying to carry his burden alone. It took
the wise insight of his father-in-law, Jethro, to point out the fact that
others "will bear the burden with you."
God’s people were never meant to carry their burdens alone. That’s why we
have the privilege of prayer. Peter urged us to cast "all your care upon
Him, for He cares for you" (1 Pet. 5:7). Bearing burdens is also the role
of the Church. Paul instructed believers, "Bear one another’s burdens, and
so fulfill the law of Christ" (Gal. 6:2).
Are you willing to help others bear their burdens? Perhaps even today
there is someone who needs you to pray with him, cook a meal or provide
transportation for him. It’s not hard to spot burdens that need to be
borne when you are looking for them. Our responsibility is to do whatever
it takes to make a burden lighter. That’s a responsibility that brings
great satisfaction now and eternal reward in the future.

A burden shared is a lighter load.
