Matthew 11:28-30, NIV: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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."

So, what is it about us? Are we control freaks, or what? Why is it we insist on shouldering loads we were not meant to bear? We step back, take a good look at the world and say, "I know just what to do." But the world is heavier than it looks, and we are not equipped to go it alone. "Come to me," Jesus tells us. Is it because He thinks we are weak? No, it is because He knows better than us exactly what we are. But our eyes are often bigger than our abilities. And so, we determine to take on more than we can handle. Is that sin? No matter how noble our intentions, taking on too much (like not doing enough) is outside of God's will. Saving the world is not our burden--it is God's. Ours is to do His will with the little fragment of the world He entrusts to us--and that through His strength--not our own.

Also do not forget this......



James 2:14-26
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

1 Samuel 18:25-27 ESV

Then Saul said, “Thus shall you say to David, ‘The king desires no bride-price except a hundred foreskins of the Philistines, that he may be avenged of the king’s enemies.’” Now Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines. And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king’s son-in-law. Before the time had expired, David arose and went, along with his men, and killed two hundred of the Philistines. And David brought their foreskins, which were given in full number to the king, that he might become the king’s son-in-law. And Saul gave him his daughter Michal for a wife.
