Lighter Burdens or Broader Shoulders?

Submitted by James Higginbotham on July 16, 2009 – 4:07 pmNo Comment

This quote is something to really think about:

Quote by Jewish Proverb: “I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.”

Are you fighting adversity? Are you asking God to strengthen you, or lighten you in your leadership role?

One way God broadens our shoulders is by the help of others:

“And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” (Ecc 4:12 ESV)

So, what kind of adversity are you dealing with? How are you asking God to help you?
