The Kitchen Table Galatians Day 33
For each will have to bear his own load. Galatians 6:5
If we want to help others, we need to help ourselves. We need to make the changes we need to make to become the person God wants us to become first. It’s called sowing God’s word into our hearts so that we can sow God’s word in the hearts of others. This verse carries with it the message of yesterday. We can’t compare ourselves with ourselves or we will fail ourselves. And when we compare ourselves to those around us, we fail ourselves. There is no better metric than the Master. Comparing ourselves with ourselves or those around ourselves will lead to disappointment and drama. We do that when we say things like, “I’m bad but not as bad as…” We must sow God’s word into our own heart’s first, bear our own load, and with the harvest of that season we will sow into the lives of those around us. That doesn’t mean that we don’t care but that we care enough to let God change us first.
