Following Jesus isn't a chore, it's something we should be happy to do!

Key Points:

  • In Bible times, every normal person had to work really hard.
  • When animals were put to work they had to wear a “yoke”.
  • Jesus said his yoke was easy not hard like other religions. Matthew 11:28-30
  • Following Jesus isn’t a chore, it’s something you really want to do.

Memory Verse:

Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.
