I've been reading Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul by Hannah Anderson. I usually don't recommend books before I'm finished reading them, but I can already, highly recommend this one!
Matthew 11:28-29 says, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 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."
Come to Me all you who labor and are heavily ladened down with your own burdens. That's us! Ladened down with burdens we put on ourselves, burdens we were never meant to carry alone. He promises rest if we just take His yoke and learn from Him. His yoke is so much easier than the one we've put on ourselves. His yoke is a yoke of humility and dependence on Him, not pride and dependence on ourselves.
I don't want to spoil the read for your or give away all the goodies of this book. I do want to encourage you to read it and learn humility from the lilies of the field and from the One who is truly Himself humility. Find out who you are, Who you are not, and discover the peace and rest that comes from belonging to Him.
