The Lord’s Burden Is Light

In our lives, we often hear such words, “I’m under much work pressure.” “My children are disobedient.” “My salary is too low.” “I’m still ill.” … People who say these words always look depressed and have no path to take. The Lord Jesus said, “Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Mat 11:28). Jesus’ word is the truth. He tells us that His burden is light. As long as we rely on Him and cast all our anxiety on Him, we will be relaxed. The following selected Bible verses about “the Lord’s burden is light” will help us get rest.
