Ron: You know everybody’s got burdens. When a burden is too much for you to bear, according to Galatians 6, I’m supposed to help.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: “Carry one another’s burdens,” says the Bible. Of course, there are different kinds of burdens: financial stress, relationships, disasters, or illness. One common burden in stepfamilies is grief for lost or broken relationships. Nearly everyone is carrying their own grief and the family has a collective grief to bear.

So when you pray for your family, ask God to clothe family members with compassion and empathy for the losses and sadness of others. Pray for patience and the willingness to support one another as you bear one another’s burdens.

For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
