A Daily Devotion for Friday, February 12


Matthew 11:25-30


verses 28-30: “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.”


I think I have always simplified this passage. I read it as simply meaning we are to give all our troubles to Jesus. But actually, he tells us to come to him if we are burdened, and take on his yoke. Doing this we “will find rest for (our) souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” I guess the end result is the same, but it involves following Jesus, giving up our own yoke, whatever is pulling us along, and taking on the yoke led by Jesus. The imagery is powerful.

Holy Father, I am willing. I want to be led by Jesus, and Jesus alone. I know this is the only way for me. Help me to stay on the path, led by you. Amen
