This life should be about serving others.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. In this life, many seek to be masters: masters of others, masters of their own fate, or what have you. But this life, in view of Yeshua’s clear example, is about servitude. We must live to serve others, and that service begins and ends with Yeshua. Just as we domesticate animals, feed them, shelter and protect them, and use them to perform certain needed tasks, such as those required on farms, Yeshua has invited us into his fold.
There, we will be fed (both physically and spiritually); sheltered and protected from dangers and evils we can and cannot see; and we will carry whatever light loads he chooses to assign to us, which this life requires. In this way, we come into his service and leave the service of the master of this world, who forces much labor on us, and loads us down with many heavy life burdens.
Today, Yeshua’s invitation still stands. To those who will hear and obey, choosing to serve him faithfully in this life, he says:
28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
—Matthew 11:28 – 30
