“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:29

Think

When God calls us to do something – or not do something – there’s always a reason. He knows what is best for our lives. He doesn’t want us to struggle unnecessarily in areas where we could experience success. So the guidelines and guardrails He places in our lives all serve a powerful purpose.

Jesus promises us that when we follow Him, we will “find rest.” In other words, when we follow His directives for our lives, we discover our ultimate purpose in Him. It’s true in every area, including our relationships.

When it comes to your relationships, are you following God’s directives? Have you taken God’s “yoke upon you”? When you do, you will truly discover rest for your soul.

Pray

Thank God once again for His clear direction for your relationships. Thank Him for the peace that comes with following that direction.

Act

The best place to find the right THEY is in God’s House. Make church attendance this weekend a priority in your life, surround yourself with the right THEY, and discover an amazing peace that comes with following God’s call on your life!
