The LORD isn’t burdensome!

“But if you refuse to pay attention to what Adonai your God says, and do not observe and obey all his mitzot and regulations which I am giving you today, then all the following curses will be yours in abundance.”

Deuteronomy 28:15 CJB

We all want to hear about the good things and blessings from the LORD, but we don’t want to hear about rules and regulations! Honestly following after the LORD really isn’t burdensome, Jesus really made it easy!

“He told him, You are to love Adonai your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. This is the greatest and most important mitzvah(command). And the second is similar to it, You are to love your neighbor as yourself.”

Matthew 22:37-39 CJB Also in: Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18

In other words, the LORD really made following Him easy: just love the LORD and love people around us, even though loving others can be a challenge at times! But we still can do it!

“For loving God means obeying His commands. Moreover, His commands are not burdensome.”

1 John 5:3 CJB

Today, realize, it’s always going to be better for us when we just walk in the ways of the LORD! Have a blessed day following the LORD!
