SFC DAILY DEVOTIONS
"We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbor for his good edification. For even Christ pleased not himself, but as it is written; the reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me." Romans 15:1-3
Our challenge today!
So the questions are: Are we our brother’s keeper? And are we expected to look after the weak? Yes! Compassion for others can change the world. In Isaiah 58 it tells us that if we reach out to others our light will shine in obscure places. Our world today has many dark places and the only thing that will make it different is when we the stronger help to carry the burdens of the weaker and put our neighbor before ourselves, just as Jesus did when he gave his life to take our burdens of sin.
"Surely he has borne our grief’s and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken and smitten of God and afflicted." Isaiah 53:4
