A pastor, engaged in a difficult work in which his faith was severely tested, one day received a wonderful answer to his anxieties!
Returning home with a package for his wife, he stopped at his paralyzed little girl and sat in her chair:
- Where is Mom?
- She is upstairs.
- Well, I have a package for her and I go up to give it to her.
- Oh daddy! Let me bring it to her.
- But Minnie, you cannot!
With a small smile, the child replied:
- Oh no, dad, but you give me the package, I carry the package and you, you carry me!
Then the pastor, taking his daughter in his arms, went up the stairs … and the package too.He understood then that this was exactly the position he had to take in his ministry.If we allow ourselves to be carried by CHRIST, it will at the same time carry our burdens of which we will no longer feel the weight.
“And in the wilderness, where you saw how the LORD your GOD hat borne carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.”
