Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden. Matthew 11.28.

Once I went to a village to preach, and there I learned the lesson of being heavy laden. The village I visited was on the other side of a hill, and was inaccessible by train or steamboat. I therefore took a steamboat to a certain point and from there walked uphill and then down to reach it. I carried with me many gospel booklets, pamphlets, some food and extra clothing. I felt fine with the first twenty steps, but afterward I could hardly bear the burden. I thought if I could only arrive at my destination quickly I then could rest. But there was no tree on the hill to shade me from the hot sun. And at that moment I began to understand how sinners must labor and how they must be heavy laden. Some of you may not have yet believed in the Lord Jesus; you therefore have no rest. Where, then, are you headed? Listen to the words of the Lord Jesus: “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
