In the Gospels, Jesus said this: "Come to me all who are weary and tired. I will give you rest. My yoke is easy and my burden is light..."
What the heck is a yoke?! Yeah, not a word we use all the time now, but back then they did. A yoke is a wooden crosspiece that is fastened over the necks of two animals and attached to the plow or cart that they are to pull. Jesus tells us that his yoke is easy. It isn't like a prison. He leads us with grace and kindness.
