From a letter by John Newton to one of his parishioners
“Therefore we are required not only to resist the world the flesh and the devil but likewise to bear one another’s burdens: which plainly intimates there will be something borne with on all hands; and happy indeed is he that is not offended”
When we share a physical burden with a brother there is a literal weight of the soul that is transferred from one to another. We partake with each other and transfer both burdens and hope as we walk through life together, sharing and unburdening our hearts with one another. Don’t isolate yourself in the darkness and wallow in self pity but cast aside pride by sharing griefs and pain with one another.
