This week, we're wondering about Matthew 11:28:
(Jesus said) "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."
What do you do when you're awfully tired, or upset, or overwhelmed?
1) Take a nap
2) Throw a tantrum
3) Talk to somebody who can help you
4) Go play
What's the best answer? Probably not (2), although that surely brings attention to a problem that's gotten too big for a little one to handle. And it can let off steam!
Answer (1) is nice, but not always possible, and might not solve a problem :-(
(4) can be a very good solution! But it might not be the right time or place.
(3) is a great idea, especially when the
you talk to is Jesus!
Let Jesus help! Jesus will give you rest. What is the best way to talk to Jesus, to bring to him your problems, burdens, worries?
is the best way!
