Burdens and Loads

CAPE ARGUS – 1939, February 20
Lines from Sunday’s sermon

“St. Paul writes of two sorts of ‘burdens – our own and our brother’s – and he uses different words to describe them – ‘burdens’ and ‘loads.’ Every man has his own life to live, his own problems to solve, his own responsibilities to face. Friends may help by their cheering counsel and kindly sympathy, but the full weight of the burden must rest on his own shoulders. But there are other burdens which one can carry for another, and this helping hand fulfills the law of Christ and makes one’s own load the easier to carry.” – The Rev. William Avery, Presbyterian Church, Woodstock.
