"Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart. And you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light."
This beautiful invitation from Jesus is a favorite and often quoted scripture passage among Christians. Jesus tells us that, while we will have burdens in our daily lives and as his disciples, we are not alone. When we carry his yoke – when we make the concerted effort to live as Jesus did with love and care for others – he shares the burden with us. Jesus promises that his burden is easy and light because he is always present with us, helping us shoulder whatever we must carry in our lives. All we need to do is rest in Jesus.
