Rest

Scripture reading

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

–Matthew 11:28

Thought of the Day

A good friend of mine gave me a little book that is very interesting. The name of it is 444 SURPRISING QUOTES ABOUT JESUS by Isabella Bunn. I am not sure why they are all surprising, but they are great quotes about Jesus. Here is a good one.

“I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are very wise and very beautiful; but I have never read in either of them: “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden”.

St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430)

Remember this quote if you want, but never forget the words from Christ Jesus from the Gospel of St. Matthew. It is hard to find more comforting words.

Prayer

Lord, I am ready for some rest. Amen.
