When caring isn’t on the menu …
A Facebook friend shared this exchange …
Overheard in a restaurant:
WAITER: “Is everything okay sir?”
MAN: “Huh? Oh, yeah, well, I’ve been kind of down since the divorce.”
WAITER: “Uh, I meant with your meal.”
There are a lot of people like this restaurant customer all around us. People who are hurting, struggling, and feeling very alone. People with real needs who need someone to share their burdens with. People who find conversation with a waiter a welcome interaction.
God understands that about us, and has a couple of remedies for us. In addition to His Holy Spirit living in us as our constant companion, we also have each other:
“Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ,” Galatians 6:2.
Outside of your immediate family, who’s burdens are you sharing?
