ATLAS WE AIN’T
In Greek mythology, Atlas was a Titan condemned by Zeus to support the heavens upon his shoulders. You would think by looking at some of us Christians that God cursed us with the same blight. We go around carrying the world, it would seem, upon ours. You can always spot this type; they’re spiritually stooped.
CARRYING MORE THAN ONE PERSON CAN BARE
When Moses spoke to Korah and his company he said, “[Ye take] too much upon you.” We need to remember this whenever we think it is our responsibility to carry the weight of all that’s happening around us and in the world. Whenever we have more than we can carry, to be sure, God was not the cause of the addition.
Our Lord promises not to put on us, “…above that ye are able…” The straw that broke the camel’s back, as I said, was not put there by God. Anyone who is even slightly familiar with the Lord knows He doesn’t give burdens; He takes them. “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee.” Mark it well, Satan is behind,“Let there more...be laid upon [them].”
