I Am Gentle and Humble

Matthew 11:29. Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

A yoke is a double neck harness used to keep oxen working together. Jesus wants us to be working with Him. We tend to go off on our own. He also describes Himself to be gentle and humble in heart. I’m sure we’ve all known people who confessed humility with their mouths yet we could see pride and arrogance in their actions. When we fake something there is no rest. Jesus said humble in heart. Our humility must be an honest humility. We must really accept we are no better than the next person. We are sinners. The difference is we are forgiven through the blood of Jesus.
