Matthew 11:28 (New American Standard Bible ©1995)
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest."
Jesus offers rest to those of us who are burdened with the weights
of sin, fear, worry and the absence of purpose. The loads we carry may be hardly
noticeable at first but if not released into Gods waiting hand have a habit of
becoming heavier until their weight affects our every movement, slowing us
spiritually and eventually crippling our effectiveness as the human children of
our Heavenly Father.
When Jesus spoke the words it was thought that He was addressing the Jews who were burdened and trapped by the complex and numerous laws and traditions but it is an offer which He makes to everyone today. Often the things in our lives that keep us from loving God and each other completely are burdens of our own making and are tightly bound with our human tendency to sin and then to hide from the God who can reveal those sins to us so we end up carrying a burden of guilt and fear.
To God our burdens are tiny and light. He wants to relieve us of them. It may take some effort and courage to recognise and release our heavy loads but it is worth it to be able to stand upright and skip onwards (metaphorically speaking) in life without constraint.
