One More Rock

Jesus said, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

As Dawn read that, she thought back to her grueling hike up a mountain during a spiritual retreat.

Oh how she struggled under the burden of an increasingly heavy backpack.
At each leg of her journey, a rock was added.
On each rock was the name of a sin like cursing or jealousy.
As she neared the top, the shape of a cross came into view.
Dawn was exhausted.  She released the stones at the base of the cross.
You see, she was carrying burdens around she didn’t need to.

And I suspect, you do too.

The stones you carry have names like anger, jealousy, deceit, and fear.

Friend, today, lay down the weights of your life at the foot of the cross.
