Life is busy and people are tired. Our days are filled with what seems like a never-ending list of activities and obligations. The hectic nature of life makes us long for rest. This is just what Jesus promises to those who will come to him. He offers rest to those who are weary and a lightened load to those who are burdened. But if Jesus offers us rest why don’t we experience more of it? Why do the burdens we carry not seem lighter? How can we find rest and lighten the load in the midst of our day-to-day busyness?
