In the Gospel Jesus says: “Take my yoke upon you.” A “yoke” is a wooden bar placed across the necks of two animals to join them together so they can work together pulling a plow.
So, Jesus yokes himself to us to join us in our discipleship and to lift us up when we are weary and burdened. But even more, he is teaching us something – he is teaching us how to be yoked to others – how to share the burdens of others. He says “learn from me” – learn from my example, my way of living, my concern for others who are burdened.
