Matthew 11:29 29 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.  (NIV)

When oxen are yoked together only one can be in the lead.  That one, the one in the slightly bigger yoke, leads and, while leading, teaches the other ox how to do the work of pulling.  We are to be yoked with Jesus.  Jesus is a gentle and humble teacher.  As we are yoked to Him it is up to us to learn of Him.  We can only learn of Him through careful and regular study of the text book for life (The Holy Bible) which God so lovingly provided for us.  Yes, we can stay yoked without learning but then we will always miss out really knowing Who it is in the other side of the yoke.  Let us earn to allow Jesus to teach us in and through all circumstances we experience by staying in the yoke, allowing Him to guide and teach us.  Through getting to know Him we sill find rest.
