Jesus invites me to learn from Him, saying that He is gentle and humble in heart, which makes me realize that I am, in contrast, very stubborn and arrogant. If I make effort to pretend to be otherwise, I will be more weary and burdened. If I were not willing to walk with Jesus, connected to Him, I would never begin to learn from Him.
I have been a Christian for more than 30 years, but I am afraid I have never been really eager to take His yoke upon me...
Indeed, stubborness and arrogance weigh me down. When I ask the Lord to take these burdens away, taking His yoke upon me, He will surely give me rest.
I am weary of my own stubborness, and I am burdened with my own arrogance.
Help me take Your yoke upon me and learn from You.
Then I will find rest for my soul, knowing that Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light,
for You are gentle and humble.
