People are Fragile
This world can be hard on us, folks.
Even those who appear the strongest need a break once in a while.
If you are one of the strong ones, make sure you take the break.
If you are one of the ones being hard on people, stop.
Now’s not the time to be pressuring, questioning, demanding or assuming. Now’s the time to support, listen, pray and give the benefit of the doubt.
We all need someone in our corner.
Moses had Aaron and Hur. Men who were willing to stand with Moses and do as God had commanded. They kept Moses’ hands lifted to the heavens. Life and death depended on these men helping Moses. In the middle of a battle, this had been God’s command. This would be what would bring victory. And Aaron and Hur stepped up to the challenge. The result? Relief and victory.
When you take some of the pressure off, people are able to endure longer.
Are you stepping up to the challenge? It’s hard these days to be positive. Sometimes things don’t go your way. Sometimes we don’t agree. But for the sake of everyone, now is the time to offer a hand instead of a critique.
Let’s stand together and hold up the arms of those leading us. Teachers, government officials, preachers, policemen, and others who lead, need support, prayer and encouragement. Let’s help make their load lighter, their burden less and their spirits lifted.
This is the important work right now. The pressure is thick. The enemy is fierce. The tension is strong. Let’s be part of the solution right now. There’ll be time for tough conversations and firm words in the future. People are fragile. Handle them with care.
Galatians 6:2, Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Exodus 7:13-14, But Moses’ hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the sword.
What’s something you can do today to lighten someone’s load?
