A lecturer was giving a talk to students on stress management. He raised a glass of water and asked the audience, "How heavy do you think this glass of water is?"


The students’ answers ranged from 20 grams to 500 grams.


The lecturer replied, " The absolute weight doesn’t matter. What matters is how long you hold it. If I hold the cup for a minute, I would be Ok. If I hold it for an hour, I will have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for one day, you will have to call an ambulance. The cup of water is the exact same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels and the more damage it can do to me."


God never intended mankind to carry alone his or her own life’s burdens or to pay his or her sins’ penalty. God wants to carry our life’s burdens along with us and to pay our sin’s penalty for us.


To let God do what He alone can do for us is not irresponsible but wise. Only God can forgive and give eternal life. So choose to enter the grace-sustained life by putting your trust in Jesus’ death on the cross for the forgiveness of your sins and for a right relationship with God now.
