dare to help!

"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." -Galatians 6:2

I wonder what this world would look like if we began to carry the burdens of the people around us. I mean, truly got into the "dirt" with them and helped them walked through life.

What about every woman who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant? What if we surrounded her with love and let her know we care about her and her baby? What if people didn't turn a blind eye to people, but instead tried to see life as they saw it and attempt to understand their perspective?

Understanding their perspective doesn't mean that you agree with it. Understanding means you are willing to listen to what they have to say without trying to adjust their perspective. If you believe differently, your life should be a testament to your beliefs rather than your arguments. And if they do ask for advice, that's when you offer your opinion, in a loving manner.
