Rest for the Weary

“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
(Matthew 11:28–30, NRSV)

We want the rest. But we resist the yoke.

The yoke is one on learning, discovery, and growth. But we fear it is a yoke of rules, restrictions, and limitations.

The heart of Jesus is gentle and humble. He wants us to have the same heart. I’m ready to lay down my burden and take his instead.

Who will join me?
