Love & Devotion (14 of 21)

Matthew 11:28-30 (New Living Translation) "Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
-Love & Difficulty Aren't Related

I wish that there was more on my mind about this passage to share with you. But, this is all I've got to say, so here goes...

God's love is so caring that it want's to make life easier for us. He has extended a invitation that's hard to refuse and is in tune with what we seek to have for ourselves. Not once has God made life difficult, our disobedience to God is what makes life difficult. Hear this word of exhortation, love and difficulty aren't related! Don't be fooled by sweet words or superficial actions, because difficulty has no place in love.

In the words of one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters, Porky Pig, "...that's all folks!" Have a great weekend of rest and I'll see you Sunday morning!
