July 9, 2017 | Jesus said, “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, 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.”
Rest is an essential thing in our lives. Too often, we run through life dashing to the next place to make the most out of the day. Jesus began his ministry by carrying the strain of many duties. As Jesus undertook his ministry, he continually focused on God’s purpose without getting sidetracked by what other people wanted or expected him to do. To take care of ourselves that is and not get so caught up in getting absolutely everything checked off our to do list before calling it a night.
