Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

December 11, A.D. 2002

Isaiah 40:25-31
Psalm 103:1-4,8,10
Matthew 11:28-30


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"I will give you rest."

Jesus says, "Come to me all you who are weak and heavily burdened." He did not say turn to TM, massage therapy, or aromatherapy or any number of other places people seem to find comfort.

He goes on to say, "Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me." What should we learn from Him? We should learn how to love one another -- selflessly and to the death. We should learn how to teach one another and how to help each other know when we are going astray. Mostly we should learn from Him deep humility. We should imitate His deeply humble, beautiful heart. We should enfold ourselves within it. This is where true peace lays -- completely enfolded in Jesus Christ. Without Him no peace exists that is worth having.

Without Jesus, Peace is meaningless; with Him, it is the path of the Kingdom of Heaven.
