It’s Not Your Job

It’s not your job to bear the burdens of the world. I think it’s a timely reminder in an age where we are bombarded with news from all over the world literally nonstop. It can be overwhelming if you let it. But you don’t have to.

Jesus didn’t say for you to fix every problem that you see or that you become aware of. He didn’t say to protest every wrongdoing at every possible opportunity. Your shoulders aren’t big enough to carry all the weight of all the suffering in all the world. But His are.

That’s why He said for you and me to cast our cares and burdens on Him and take His yoke of obedience and trust, for His yoke is easy and His burden is light. He said through the Apostle Paul to be anxious about nothing but to pray about everything. Then live as though the answer is already given and the victory already won, because it has been and it is.
