Yoke, and not one in an egg.

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. Matthew 11:28–30

It is so interesting how I can learn something completely differently about a concept I have been reading about for years. The yoke is a reference to all the laws the Jews had to abide by– the laws of the land and the laws of their spiritual leadership. Jesus says “take MY yoke” and encourages us to learn from him and no one else…

Stop trying to please others, stop coping with the burdens of life on your own; the panacea is in Jesus. He is the one who can help us overcome these burdens and live freely.
