reflection for reading of the day Dec 10

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.”

Sometimes we think Christianity is one long set of rules and regulations. Jesus did not come to give us more rules. Jesus came to carry our burdens. When we feel weight down by our cross. We need to remember that Jesus is carrying our cross for us. We are not carrying it alone.

Jesus said the law and prophets could be summed up in these two great commandments. Love God. Love your neighbor.

Today rest in the knowledge that you are a beloved daughter or son of God.
