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.
– Matthew 11:29
For I am gentle and humble in heart…
is a difficult task to do… To be meek and gentle of heart leads one to go beyond oneself, to serve and to bless others with their gifts.
The sermont on the mount is beautiful. God’s ways are always bigger, higher, and mightier than ours. He teaches us and provided us with a manual of living a life on Earth, just as He did. He didn’t promise us a life filled without sorrows or sufferings but living in obedience to His ways, His teachings, and His life will bring us true joy.
A happiness, peace that surpasses all human knowledge and understanding. It’s a gift, freely given. How blessed we are! To receive the gift of faith we have to treasure it, to treat it as our prized possession. To guard it for life.
