More Than Bread Devotional for 5/2/08

Galatians 6:2
Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

I saw the neatest film clip today. It was from a college softball game out west. A girl hit a home run to win the game, but when she got to first base, she blew out her knee and couldn't keep running. By rule, she had to circle the bases for the winning run to count, but her teammates weren't allowed to help her or even touch her or she would be out. Two girls from the other team came over and carried this girl around the bases, costing themselves the game and a chance for the playoffs. In the process, they aptly demonstated the heart of this verse. They fulfilled the "law" of the game by carrying another person (literally in this case). What burden can you carry for another today?
