Atlas was condemned to carry the weight of the entire world on his shoulders

That was as harsh a punishment as the ancient Greek mind could conjure up. Today, it seems, we have volunteered to play the role of Atlas. We have not offended God, we have dismissed God from our lives. We have told God we are so grown up that we do not need his help any more. Many of us want to carry the weight of the entire world on our own shoulders. 

The question is, when it gets too heavy for us, what do we do? When there are questions too hard for human knowledge to answer and problems that take more time to solve than any of us have, what will we do? Will we be too proud to admit that we have made a mistake in wanting to carry this world alone on our own shoulders? 

Will we reach out and begin to WORK WITH GOD? As God said in the Book of Genesis: “I will be your God and you will be my people.” (Genesis 17:7). We and God have a Covenant to work together.
