Y ~ Yoke

    Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.    Matthew 11:29-30
     Those were two verses quoted often in the Amish church I grew up in.
     The yoke was viewed as obeying all the church rules, but those kept changing and being added to regularly.
      If someone complained they were viewed as being in rebellion to the yoke of Christ, if they would only submit and humble themselves the yoke would be easy and the burden of all those rules wouldn't feel heavy they were told.
     Seeing so many struggling under the weight of what is expected of them, and never being able to get it right I wish they could see that, that is not at all what Jesus was teaching. Truly His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.


  1. Amen! Gods laws, (rules) are unchanging and it truly does make the yoke easy and the burden is indeed light. I wish so many who are unfairly burdened in various faiths would see this truth.

  2. So sad when so-called leaders in the church misinterpret the Scriptures.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
