Moleskin:
Working out with coupons and getting stronger brought to mind two themes from the Bible: strengthen yourself in the Lord and bear one another’s burdens. We don’t workout with weights for vanity or just to look better. We do it to get stronger so we can be more capable and do more. So we can serve better. You cannot lift someone else up if you are weak.

Likewise, we do not strengthen ourself in the Lord just for our own sake. We do it so we can bear one another’s burdens. You cannot bear the burden of another unless you have already strengthened yourself in the Lord. That’s why we do this. When we bear someone’s burdens, we enable them to strengthen themselves in the Lord so that they will in turn be able to bear the burdens for someone else.

Strengthen yourself in the Lord today. Bear one another’s burdens. No man is in this alone.

Soul Glo out
