Today I will seek the lighter burden and the gentler yoke by looking for Christ with child-like eyes. Life is never burden-free. We find what we seek. And cleverness and intelligence may be more an obstacle than a help.

Matthew 11

7-8 “What did you go out into the desert to look at? A reed waving in the breeze? No? Then what was it you went out to see?—a man dressed in fine clothes?

25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you’ve hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have shown them to babies.”

 28-30“Come to me, all of you who are weary and over-burdened, and I will give you rest! Put on my yoke 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.”

J. B. Phillips

Today I will lay my yoke upon God’s altar and accept His.
