Everyday Dead Body Friend
I have a dead body friend. You know… a friend you can call at 2:00am and say, “I’ve got a dead body at my house. Come help me.” And that person will come over and help you-no questions asked.
It’s great to have friends who encourage and help us carry our burdens through difficult times and it’s especially great to have at least one “dead body friend.” How interesting to understand the Greek translation when living out Galatians 6:2, “When someone is burdened by worries and difficult circumstances that are too much for one person to carry all alone, crawl up under that burden and help carry it.” The point Paul is making to the Galatians here is this; when someone is under a crushing weight and under pressure like they’re gonna break, reach out and help them. Help them carry it. They need your help not necessarily your words or another scripture verse. When we do help someone with their load, we’re actually following the rest of the verse by obeying the law of Christ…everyday.
