weekly scripture reflection
Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30
Especially in challenging times, life can weigh us down with many burdens of mind and spirit. Jesus invites us to learn from him, using his yoke to help make the load bearable. Jesus’ yoke is his way of forgiveness and compassion, generosity and humility, practiced by a community of which he is the heart. These practices help us unload the weight of judgment, fear and entitlement. Through this shared life, we find wisdom and support that lightens our load.
When have you felt deep peace and rest in Jesus’ presence?
How does Jesus’ yoke help you with the burdens that life brings?
You're invited to make a sacred space in your day, praying here and now, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
