A Thought for the week
Week of September 24
Matthew 11:28-30
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
We all have some kind of burden we carry. It’s like the backpack of rocks. So heavy to carry around. I think God is telling us to hand the sack over to Him and He will carry it for us. Reminds me of the story of Mary and Martha.
Luke 10:38-4238 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Insert your name “__________, __________, you are worried and upset about many things, few things are needed, really only one.”
Be still for a while at the feet of Jesus and He will give you all you need.
