Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for 1 am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Matthew 11.29.

The attitude our Lord continually maintained while on earth was one of meekness and lowliness. For us who are Christians to find that rest of which He spoke, we need to do two things: first, to "take my yoke upon you"; and second, to "learn of me." A yoke is a wooden rod placed upon the back of an ox to keep it from moving freely so that it may work diligently. In the land of Judea, the yoke was always shared by two oxen instead of being placed on only one ox. The yoke was put on the ox by its master; and hence the Lord our Master says to us to "take His yoke upon us." This yoke is apportioned to us by God and not by man nor by the devil. It is given by God, and it is chosen by us.

Whatever is appointed by God, and if taken by us, shall make us happy. If I am satisfied, I will have peace. I have nothing to be unhappy about because I have not escaped from the yoke of God appointed to me.
