Nothing makes us so lonely as our secrets. (Paul Tournier, 20th century Swiss physician and author)
Sometime, we may be asked if we can keep a secret. If we say we can, we may be told something that we’ll have a hard time keeping to ourselves. On the other hand, we may want to share our secret with someone, but for one reason or another we just can’t share it. Then, we may feel isolated because we’re carrying our burden alone. That’s hard and lonely!
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2).
