Mat 11:25-30 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him]. Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.
In Luke this passage is connected with the return of Jesus disciples after He had sent them out two by two - to heal the sick and raise the dead and cast out demons and preach the gospel. He then goes on to call the weary workers to enjoy HIS REST - for HIS yoke is easy and HIS burden is light - when the burden gets heavy and the days are dreary - stop and think that - HIS yoke is EASY - and HIS burden is light- the heavy ones are the ones of our own making!
