But some of us continue to carry the heavy burden of tying to be “good enough.” I heard a modern Parable that illustrates this. In the Parable, the driver of a wagon was on his way to market when he overtook an old man carrying a heavy load. Taking compassion on him, the driver invited the old man to ride in the wagon. Gratefully the old man accepted. After a few minutes, the driver turned to see how the man was doing. To his surprise, he found him still straining under the heavy weight. He had not taken the burden off his shoulders. The old man explained, “I knew you would carry me, but I did not know you would also carry my burden.”


Too many Christians continue to carry the heavy burden of trying to be “good enough” to please God. We work feverishly to gain God’s approval by doing religious stuff. We don’t understand that Jesus’ finished work on the cross gave us permission to REST.
