Galatians 6:2 ” Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the Law of Christ.”

To carry out the Law of Christ here, we must first know what it is.  James 2:8 tells us, “If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself,’ you are doing right.”  When we bear other’s burdens in a way we would want to be treated, we are fulfilling the royal law of King Jesus.  But what does this look like?  It’s done with compassion and love in a nonjudgmental way…listening attentively and always speaking the truth of God’s word.  It’s inspiring hope in places of sadness and always it’s done with integrity, and trustworthiness.
