Trials Are Not a Contest

Never think that what you are enduring in a valley isn’t worth sharing. Burdens shared become lighter. Do not think, that just because some else’s burden looks heavier than yours, that it minimizes what you are going through. Pain isn’t a contest. It’s a chance to gain empathy for others, experience empathy from others, and get some perspective. It’s a chance to exercise Galatians 6:22 as you bear one another’s burdens, and to draw near to God as you cast your burdens upon Him (Psalm 55:22).
