Taking on a Yoke
Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29.
Taking on a yoke implies being united to one another in order to work together. Those who are yoked must go in the same direction. Recent weeks have been very busy at St. Peter. The Orphan Grain Train Fish Dinner, the Stauffer Benefit, the St. Peter Salad Luncheon, Wine Dinner, the Church Council and the Voter’s Meetings are some of the tasks we have all shared. Together, the work was made considerably easier. When we decide to submit our lives and our will to God’s direction, our burdens will become manageable.
Prayer….Dear Lord, give me the light in the midst of my labors and distress. Give me Your love and peace. Guide me according to Your loving will. In Jesus name, Amen.
