We know that we all have our particular cross to carry in life. Jesus says that if we don’t take it up and carry it, we cannot be His disciples. But most, if not all, of us take crosses upon ourselves that don’t have our names on them, and were not intended for us to carry. The divorce of parents, an alcoholic mother or father, being abused in some manner, a feeling of rejection in life. These can all result in heavy crosses that do not have our names on them. Yet, we still lug them around as though we were responsible for what was done to us by others. Are you carrying crosses that have other people’s name tags on them? Let’s talk about this on Thursday, and maybe we can all grow a little closer to God – and to peace of mind and heart.
