My Yoke is Easy and My Burden is Light

One of my friends thinks God is too restrictive and burdensome. One day I told her:

Look, the Bible says you are going to carry a yoke.

But only God's yoke will be the lightest with nothing false tacked on.

Because you will have a yoke, even if it's just your own best guess made up of the most successful influences on you.

Your parents will try to tell you what to believe. So will your school, government, media, and all the latest gurus, psychologists, and philosophers.

In the end you will trick yourself into believing things God never said you have to believe, carrying burdens God never said you have to carry.

God isn't giving you his standard to burden you but to set you free from all the false rules out there.

That's why Jesus said, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:30)

No profanity, please.

Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. (Eph 4:29)
