Yoked to Jesus

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” †  Mathew 11: 28-30  What is the labour and burden that Jesus is asking me to deal with? Perhaps I have to let go of the compulsive burden (or is it a sort of entitlement?) that my spouse and children should choose a spiritual path that I know to be right.

Human dimension of Wisdom

Wisdom is superior to knowledge. Wisdom is at the disposal of all despite our intellectual capabilities. Wisdom is free for all those who seek.

Wisdom is a share in God’s knowledge. And since God is love, His knowledge has inter human relationships and human-divine relationship pivotal to it. Any intelligence, knowledge or expertise becomes environment, human and God friendly when it is founded on Wisdom.

Wisdom is comes from a constant relationship with God. Wisdom is the gift of the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit guides us to the depth of God’s eternal knowledge. Wisdom belongs to the one who submit his will completely to God and present himself as an empty jar, even as his intelligence and knowledge super abound.


Relate to God consistently despite failures.
