Take my yoke upon you
Our responsibilities and troubles are things which we must carry. This is what a “yoke” represents. Jesus today compares the yoke that we usually carry and the yoke that He asks us to carry. Our own yokes are heavy and burdensome, maybe because they are not meant for us to carry them. But when we follow Christ and take His yoke upon us, it fits “just right” and Christ Himself helps us bear it. And we carry it with love and a sense of mission which gives us the strength and perseverance to push on.
Lord, give us your yoke that we may carry it with You in trust and love.
