Sometimes our burdens seem more than we can bear, and we wonder how we can go on.
We all carry some type of burden, whether it’s the heavy burden of sin, the burden of not being able to handle the concerns, problems, worries that life throws at us, the burden of excessive demands of religious leaders, the burden of oppression and persecution, or the burden of weariness in the search for God.

I guess what I’m trying to get at is this. Maybe, we should a little more time in the Old Testament.
