Jesus said to the crowds: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”

Following Jesus is not a burden. It is not easy, but when you believe in Him and follow in His path, you are not alone. Burdens are lighter when shared. Have you shared your burden?

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for always sending me someone to share my burden, for reminding me that I am never alone as long as I follow you. In Jesus’ holy name, I give you praise and thanksgiving, Amen.

O bless the Lord, my soul!
