“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Rules and regulations are good to start with…like when we are children starting out on our spiritual journeys. They give us boundaries so we can be disciplined. But as we grow…our faith must grow as well…and that means acknowledging the “gray” areas where life isn’t so “black and white.” Jesus blasted the religious leaders of His time for strictly adhering to the rules and laying a heavy burden on people who needed compassion in their brokenness. Jesus invites you to let go of your need to control or to change others and to allow Him to handle the difficult and seemingly impossible situations. Take your troubles to the risen Christ, open your heart and find rest.
