Scripture – Matthew 11:28-30

“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.”

*My thoughts: It’s interesting to me that Jesus would say his yoke is easy and his burden is light. Isn’t that amazing?!? It seems that many people these days are very busy and overwhelmed with life and the things that make up life. But Jesus – both God and man – says that his yoke is easy and his burden is light. Does this mean that Jesus doesn’t do anything? No, Jesus did and continues to do quite a bit. But based on this scripture, it doesn’t seem that he considers it hard, tiring, overwhelming, taxing and exhausting. Even if there is a lot to do in life, I believe we can consider it easy and light if we have the right attitude, motivation and spirit.
