Quote of the Day

In many cases we may, by the rules of the gospel, be obliged to give to others when we cannot do it without suffering ourselves; as if our neighbor’s difficulties and necessities are much greater than our own, and we see that he is not like to be otherwise relieved, we should be willing to suffer with him and to take part of his burden on ourselves. Else how is that rule of bearing one another’s burdens fulfilled? If we are never obliged to relieve others’ burdens but when we can do it without burdening ourselves, then how do we bear our neighbor’s burdens when we bear no burden at all?  — JONATHAN EDWARDS
