Bondage, Servitude, Obligation

The word “yoke” is used throughout the Bible and the Greek definition of the word is bondage, servitude and obligation.  Whenever I feel burdened, I am immediately drawn to Matthew 11:28-30, which states, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  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.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Every challenge we could possibly have is addressed in the Bible with Truths  to give us direction and peace.  Human will and pride just need to be left at the altar and listening with an open heart will always bring peace and guidance.
