There are a lot of times the word "bear" appears in the Bible. We're told to bear fruit, bear witness, and bear burdens. But what did the Apostle Paul mean when he told us to "bear in love" with others?
"I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."
— Ephesians 4:1-3
Notice the Apostle Paul didn't say "it'd be good if you..." or "I suggest doing..."
It was a command.
There are lots of ways to bear in love with friends and family. There is someone in your life dealing with a job loss, or financial problems, or the passing of a loved one, or a friend who is sick. It's less important how you bear in love and more important to actually bear in love. The key is that we aren’t doing it alone.
