A few years ago I had knee surgery. The recovery went well. There were still a few tender spots but I came around.
In order for me to make progress, I had to be sure that my good leg was leading the way for the damaged one. It’s not that the sore leg didn’t want to go, it just needed some help. Because my good leg took the time to help the other one along, I got stronger and was able to do what I need to do.
What I have noticed is that there is some spiritual truth to the strong helping the weak. We need each other because who knows one day that other knee may go out and it needs some help. As we celebrate the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. next week, keep in mind he had a good role model in Christ to make us all take care of each other. Are you doing your part in the pulling?
