Most revolutionary life changing phrases ever uttered all centered on the word take.


For instance: “Take my yolk upon you for my load is easy and my burden is light.” Mt 11:30

Jesus grew up as a carpenter.

Carpenter in those days would not have been much special. In those days he would not have been a handy man or house changing television presenter. Although he later got into extreme makeovers and would specialize in changing lives.

But back then as a carpenter he would have primarily made doors and yoke for oxen. Yoke was a heavy piece of wood that would fit over the shoulders of two oxen so that they could work together and synergize their individual strength. Now that only works if the two oxen worked together in harmony.

Now the way they would train a young ox would be to pair the young ox with the older ox that has learned the ropes so to speak.

Now the young ox would be tempted to pull to the left or to the right, bit the older ox would stay on the right path. Now if the younger ox decided that the pace was too slow and wanted to speed up, all he would get would be a sore neck. And so slowly the young ox begins to realize that his older partner kind of knows how to do this. The pace is right. The direction is true. And so he decides to learn from the one who already knows.
