BEAR EACH OTHER’S BURDENS
I told you in the first week of our series on healthy relationships that you can’t control people, but you must control yourself. What about helping people who are hurting? Do I just resign myself to being powerless? Of course not.
We are called to bear one another’s burdens, but we must recognize our limits and respect the limits of others. “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2, NIV) Three verses later, Paul concludes that everyone has to pull their own weight. “For each one should carry their own load.” (Galatians 6:5, NIV)
Sunday, I want to show you how to help others without hurting yourself (or them) in the process.
Yes, the C.A.L.M. technique (by Jennifer Kolari) I mentioned last week will be part of it. If you can’t wait until Sunday, check out this amazing interview of her I heard on a podcast I listen to regularly. This technique truly is a superpower if you learn to use it well!
I will be joined by Child, Adolescent, & Adult Psychiatrist and Associate Medical Director, Amen Clinics, Dr. Daniel Emina MD to explain the brain science behind this technique and share insights from his important new book, The Suicide Solution. If you or someone you love struggles with anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts, you can’t afford to miss this!
