Help carry one another’s burdens.
Nine-year-old Marlee Pack returned to Meridian Elementary School in Broomfield, Colorado, following a year of cancer treatment. Bald. Her best friend, Cameron McLaughlin, told her she was going to shave her head.
Cameron’s commitment ballooned into a school-wide event: on March 16, 2016, eighty students, three teachers, and two administrators had their heads shaved.
“If one member suffers, all suffer together,” was Paul’s prescription for the church (1 Cor 12:26). “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted,” he wrote (Eph 4:32).
Synagogue leaders entreated Paul and Barnabas: “If you have anything to say that will help the people, please say it” (Acts 13:15). Borrowing that thought: be alert today—if there’s anything you can do or say that will help someone, please do or say it.
A good intention is DOA
unless followed by action.
