Stan’s Corner, Thursday, September 29

I am feeling rather tired this evening and this scripture came to mind:

“Are you tired?  Worn out?  Burned out on religion?  Come to me.  Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.  I’ll show you how to take a real rest.  Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.  Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.  I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.  Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

These are the words of Jesus from Matthew 11:28-30 according to Peterson’s Paraphrase.  You may be more familiar with the traditional beginning: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…”
