Weary and Heavy-laden

While staying at a hotel recently, I looked out my window to the street below. 

I noticed a man riding a bicycle. 

He wasn’t just riding a bicycle for fun, though. 

He was pedaling with a lot of extra weight. 

Several bags were tied to the handlebars. 

Much larger bags were attached to the back of the bike. 

It was probably a struggle just to move down the road. 

Obviously, he must have thought this was what he needed to be doing and this was the best way of getting it done. 

How nice it would have been if someone could have seen him about to load up the bicycle and said, “Friend, that’s too much for you to carry. Here! I will take that load onto my truck. Get in! Lets deliver it together!”

Spiritually, we can be like that man on the bicycle. 

We can have many burdens and concerns. 

We can even be worried about eternity and where we will be. 

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

Is it time to let Him help you with the load you have been carrying?
