Hearing the Burdens

Dr. Ravi Zacharias says something I will never forget: “You will never lighten any person’s load until you feel the burden in your own soul.”
In my seminars and during Q&A, some times I get very difficult questions asked me and i have to remind myself with this thought: “Francis, are you answering the question or are you speaking to the questionnaire? Do you feel the anguish of the soul?”
We all need to feel the burden of another specially if we happen to be people who are in teaching and in leadership positions. We may not be able to provide the answers people are looking for but we are more than able to offer ears that hear and a heart that cares.
