When? When will we be given understanding?
When will we be able to understand each other more?
When we learn what love really is and start putting it into practice we will understand that we cannot walk in each other’s shoes but we can walk with each other sharing the burden, the load by serving one another with patience, and by listening to the heart and soul of the other person.
When that happens we will truly learn what it means to be compassionate and caring, just as Jesus was and is.
He knows our thoughts, our feelings, our lives He understands us and that is why He is compassionate towards us. He gets each one of us, that is amazing to me that billions of people Jesus understands when I cannot even understand myself. Yet Jesus does.
So is it possible to walk in one another’s shoes, to truly understand and get each other, or is it more about learning to love one another through suffering for each other that we truly get it?
Each person’s has their own shoes of suffering they have to walk through in this life, Jesus walked in his own shoes on this earth, he did not take on someone elses shoes and walk in them.
To love others does not always mean understanding them. The greatest love is when we can be patient with others when we don’t understand them, but when we have enough passion, patience, to love them as Christ would anyways.
Jesus knows each person and each persons’ suffering therefore He is able to share with us what each person needs and how to walk with them through the storms, trials and sufferings of life.
So, when will we be able to “walk in one another’s shoes”, never, but we can walk along side them and love them by being patient and kind, caring and taking care of them in the midst of the suffering.
Galatians 6:1 Carry one another’s burdens, if you do, you will give the law of Christ its full meaning. (NIRV)
The New living Translation says it this way, “Share each other’s burdens and in this way obey the law of Christ.
When we truly become like Christ, we can truly Love, and that love will never end.
