Matthew 11:28-30


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Just as Moses had his mission to carry out, so also do we. Sometimes the way is not clear to us but we know through the promise of Christ that He is with us. He has no favorites as He extends the invitation "Come to me...."

Our journey through this world of ours is many times hard. We have to face these hardships; but not alone. When we think about what a yoke is and what it is used for, we begin to get the message. A yoke is the way teams of horses or donkeys are bound together to give strength to help haul a load of products to the market. So too are we bound together with Jesus. He is with us always, through trials, sickness, anxiety, etc.

Whatever is burdening you today, just turn to Jesus and ask Him to take your pain or trouble away from you, and you will find rest for your soul. (Mt 11:29)

Jesus my Lord,
help me in my times of distress,
help me to realize how much you love me.
Help me to know, love and serve you better. Amen!
