nvite Jesus to carry your burden with you - Daily Bible Reflections July 16,2015


LIGHT BURDEN
 
“For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” – Matthew 11:30
 
       First, you must know that you will always have a yoke, a burden, while you’re here on earth. Following Jesus doesn’t mean you will be “yokeless” or “burdenless.”
       But the big difference is that Jesus’ yoke is easy and His burden, light.      
Take note that there are two meanings of “light.” There’s light, which is the opposite of darkness; and light, which is the opposite of heavy. Notice, too, that when you carry something “in the dark,” even if it seems easy, it will become difficult and heavy. That’s because you’re blind. You’re directionless. You’re carrying that load without meaning or purpose.
       But when there’s light, there’s direction, meaning and purpose. No matter how heavy your load is, it will become easy and much more fulfilling.
       When a mother is pregnant, that’s a heavy load. Yet, it seems light because that baby inside gives “light” to her. When a father works hard for a living, that’s difficult. But seeing his family happy makes it light.
       You want to make your burden light? Then carry it with Jesus. He makes it light as He lights it up! Alvin Barcelona (apb_ayo@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Invite Jesus to carry your burden with you.
 
Jesus, I come to You now with my heavy burdens. I humbly ask that You carry them with me. I rest in Your love. Amen.
 
Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for us.
