Matthew Chapter 11
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.”
I would like to concentrate on the section of the Sunday Gospel. Jesus
is giving each one of us a personal invitation to come to Him and He
will give you rest. What a wonderful offer! We are all laboring and
burdened with things in our life.
1. Have you accepted His invitation? To come to Him would be to turn from our burden and focus on Jesus. The yoke of an animal is made specifically for each animal individually. So Jesus is telling us to take His yoke and learn from
2. How can you take His yoke? How can you learn from Jesus?
3. How can Jesus’ yoke possibly be easy and his burden light? Perhaps we are called to be Christ-like and in so doing, we will find that our life gets easier to navigate with Jesus as our guide.
