As we live in a world where at we can feel like we are on overload, our readings for today remind us of some important things. In Romans we are reminded that the only escape from living in the conflict of doing what we hate instead of what we want, the only one who can rescue us from sin, is Jesus Christ our Lord. And even though the demands on our lives will never realistically decrease, in our Gospel lesson from Matthew Jesus also reminds us of another reality in our lives, and that is the fact that in him we have a place of rest and someone always by our side. With this knowledge we rest easy and have hope for a new day.
