Keep it simple.

Series: Atomic Habits | Week 2: The Thing That Affects Every Other Thing

Read Matthew 11:29-30

“’Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.’”

1. How does Jesus describe Himself in these verses?
2. What does He offer those who choose to follow Him?
3. What is the burden He has asked us to carry?

There are burdens God has asked us to carry and there are burdens He has not asked us to carry. Take some time now to give Him the ones He has not asked you to carry – sin, guilt, worry. . . Jesus took all of that and gave us, instead, a light and easy burden – one that leads to peace, joy, and a soul at rest. Thank Him now for that gift and ask Him to help you be consistent and faithful with the simple and light burden He has given you to carry.

For Families with Kids at Home
Today, tell God about the burdens you’re carrying as it relates to parenting right now. What are you worried about? What do you feel out of control over? Remember that as we walk with Jesus, he leads us to a way of peace, joy, and rest, even in our parenting.
