It should work that way. Sometimes it does work that way. But there are some
leaders (as well as non-leaders) who do not do as this article suggests. God
bless those who do. They are the hand of God in difficult times. They are like
a drink of cool water on a hot summer day.May God also bless those
who do not. Some how. In Romans 15:1-3, Paul suggested that the
strong should bear the infirmities of the weak. That we should work to please
our neighbors (in good and edifying ways). Reminding us that "even Christ
pleased not himself," but bore the pain our "reproach," of our sins,
our weaknesses, or, as Isaiah put it, our "turning every one to his own
way." (Isaiah 53:6) Surely we should work with others... as the
article suggests, for whom Christ has paid so very much. And it is good when we
do so. But all is not well, everywhere, in Zion. Would that it were.
Beautiful words of wisdom.
Nicely written. And true.
