Imagine carrying a 50-kilo sack on your shoulders. It would have been impossible. But then a man of colossal size and gargantuan biceps takes the other end of the sack. The burden is eased, because the man, far stronger than you are, carries most of the weight.
Such is the case when Jesus said, “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” We are not alone in carrying our burdens. Jesus is with us, carrying our burdens with us.
