Today’s Scripture Selection: Matthew 11:29
(Note to faithful readers: Please excuse the bit of hedging on our alphabetical search through the scriptures. X is a pesky little letter so I’m afraid we’ll have to settle for using words that have x somewhere in them!)
Jesus Christ was – and is – many things.
For those of us who seek to be Christian not just as a religious affiliation – but in order to be “Christ-followers” – this is evident.
But, how often it is that we end up following other lesser examples.
So, here’s a wonderful example of how He is to be our ultimate example and why:
“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.”
It’s not just the way to “do” right things – it’s the way to “be” who we are to be.
And in doing – and being – what Christ wants – we find rest for our souls.
Today there are so many examples of one type of another.
Some offer some sound advice.
Some offer some dangerous choices.
Some offer life.
Some offer death.
Christ offers “rest for your souls.”
And who doesn’t desire that?
Prayer: Lord, lead me, show me, teach me, and help me to follow your wonderful example. AMEN.
