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.” (Mt 11:28-30)
They say that humans are social beings; however, in many ways, we are real loners. We may like to think that we are social and we may have many social connections. But when it comes to doing things, we like to do them ourselves.
The reasons are many.
Sometimes we like doing things by ourselves because we do not want other people to be in charge of us and what we do. Sometimes we do things by ourselves because we do not trust others. Sometimes we do things on our own because we feel no one can match our standards.
Being a loner can be very frustrating. It can be very challenging. It can be extremely stressful.
Jesus knows that, which is why he told His followers “who labor and are burdened” to come to Him and let Him give them a hand.
Coming to the Lord and walking with the Lord is the smartest thing we could ever do.
FAITH ACTION: Are you tired of trying to make it through life on your own? Turn to the Lord and ask for His help.
