An Easy Burden
Feeling under the pile recently – trying so hard, but frustrated in your attempts to live a life pleasing to God? Like old Sisyphus, you try pushing the rock of legalism up the hill only to have it roll back down on top of you, crushing you in the process. “Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry.” (Matt. 11:29, 30) Crawl out from under that rock of legalism and ask God to help you climb that mountain in His strength. He’s stronger than you’ll ever be.
