Friendship Part 3: Bearing One Another's Burdens

In the final episode on the 3 parts of friendship, Gretchen and Katie talk about what it means to bear one another burdens.

It starts with a lot of humility and ends with us continually being realigned to tangible truth when our circumstances start to crush us.

While many of us like to be the one to rush to help and "be the savior" in a situation, it's almost harder to be the one asking for help with a burden, as though not handling a burden very well is affiliated with so much shame. God has designed and gifted us with friendship, and bearing one another's burdens is one of the main part of that.

Books we mentioned at the end:
