Burden

 

  1. Matthew
    • Matthew 23:4 ( Woes to Scribes and Pharisees ) [ Link ]
      • So practice and observe everything they tell you.
      • But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 
      • They tie up heavy, burdensome loads and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
      • All their deeds are done for men to see.
      • They broaden their phylacteries and lengthen their tassels.
  2. 1st John
    • 1st John 5:3 ( Overcoming the World ) [ Link ]
      • For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome, because everyone born of God overcomes the world.

 

Heart

  1. Ezekiel
    • Ezekiel 36:26 ( A New Heart and Spirit ) ( Link )
      • I will also sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean.
      • I will cleanse you from all your impurities and all your idols.
      • I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
      • And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes and to carefully observe My ordinances.…
  2. Psalm
    • Psalm 51:10-11 ( Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God) ( Link )
      • Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
      • Cast me not away from Your presence; take not Your Holy Spirit from me.
  3. Matthew
    • Matthew 11:29-30 ( Rest for the Weary ) ( Link )
      • …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.
      • For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

 

Summary

Lord, please help us.

As our Lord said, I do not give you a new commandment, but the same one “Love each other“.

He later said do not call anyone Rabbi.

Matthew 23:8 – Woes to Scribes and Pharisees ( Link )
…the greetings in the marketplaces, and the title of ‘Rabbi’ by which they are addressed. But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi, for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth your father, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.…

Lord, our problems are not laws, rules, and regulations.

Our flaw lies in our hearts, itself.

We can not correct it, but we do tender it to you and you alone.

In your word, you promise not to turn away the tender-hearted.

Please allow tenderness in us, father.
