The weak and the strong

Romans 15:1

We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

Do you think you are strong? Insightful? Inspired? Then show it by putting up with the failings of those weaker than you.

It is not easy to put up with the weak. They are a perpetual pain. They are consistently needy and weak and failing.

If you are strong, you ought to bear heavier weights than weak people. They are too weak to deal with their own troubles, let alone yours.

The cross you are chosen to bear may be heavier if you are stronger. And before you start to complain and whine about it:

Stop and Think

If you do whine and complain, you are not strong. Or perhaps as strong as you would like to spend your days thinking. You are weak and others who are stronger than you are being called to bear your failings.
