I Will Give You Rest

In a world where people “look for love in all the wrong places”—settling for second-rate substitutes that can result in addictions, family strife, depression, and suicide—Jesus shows us a way. He is the answer to all our questions, no matter what our age or state of life. He offers solace to those aching for relief. He offers truth to young people who are searching for deeper meaning and security. He restores the dignity and moral center of those who are looking for life and see only death. To each of these weary souls, Jesus says: “Come to me, allyou that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest...learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28–29).
