“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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 NIV
The burden of working from home while raising a toddler is heavy. It sometimes feels like one full-time job on top of another, especially if the toddler skips his nap.
Why would Jesus say He can give us rest by trading our heavier burden with His light one? Why wouldn’t He lift the burden entirely so we could rest without having to lift anything?
Jesus knows that after we rest, we will be rejuvenated and can work again. His work, sharing the gospel, is hardly work at all. Amen.
