Midweek Morsel: Hitchin' a Ride
Sometimes we need to be carried. Just ask the little bird who’s hitchin’ a ride on the back of the pronghorn above—a sight we witnessed, by the way, on our trip to the Tetons and Yellowstone last summer.
Maybe the little guy was tired from a long flight through the mountains or possibly he wasn’t feeling well. Maybe that was the best spot in the meadow to catch a refreshing breeze. Whatever the reason, he decided to use someone else’s strength for a bit.
I wonder if any of us need to be carried today, need to use someone else’s strength for a little while. Let’s not be afraid or embarrassed to accept help. Sometimes it’s okay to hitch a ride. Sometimes we need to be carried.
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2
*Do you have a burden we can help carry through prayer?
