“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
How often do we needlessly carry around burdens that we don’t need too?
Too often speaking for myself, but that’s why we are told by Jesus to take His yoke, meaning He won’t force it on us.
We must freely come to Him and give over what we can’t carry by ourselves and take His yoke.
The “yoke” was a farming implement that spread out the load so that one animal would not be overburdened by pulling or carrying too much of the weight.
In a similar way, when we take Jesus’ yoke, it allows us to find rest for our souls because our burdens now rest in His Mighty Hands.
God Bless You
