The Light Daily Devotional – Be a Burden Bearer
Focus: Be a Burden Bearer
“A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity.” Proverb 17:17 NKJV
It is practically impossible to know who a friend or a brother is when everything is fine and you are enjoying prosperity. Your friends and brothers were those who did not abandon you in the time of your shame, weakness and incapacitation. A man cannot boast about having a wife/husband until he/she remains loyal and ready to love sacrificially even in the worst situation.
A true friend loves both in good and bad times; in health or sickness, joy or pain, prosperity or penury, abundance or lack. It is an exhibition of pride and ignorance for a man to think he does not need a friend or a brother. You need a brother and a friend because life has proven the fact that every man will have a share of his ordeal in the journey of destiny.
If you are a type that is always available to enjoy the prosperity of men and desert them when they are experiencing challenges of life; it is only a matter of time before you will reap in multiple folds the seed of your deeds. Don’t ever say the issue in the life of someone does not concern you. When you have the grace to do something about an issue in the lives of men don’t hesitate to do it.
+ What type of friend and brother are you?
Prayer: Lord! Make me a friend and a brother indeed and let me never cease to have genuine friends and brothers in all situations in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You are created to be a brother and a friend to bear the burden of men in adversity in the manner others are bearing yours!
Have a Graceful Week Ahead!
