Weariness, fatigue, headaches, and general tiredness are often minor symptoms of a more serious, underlying sickness.
This is true in both medicine and in Christianity.
Consider many of the commands the Bible offers:
- “Be holy as I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16)
- “As you forgive, so you will be forgiven.” (Luke 6:37)
- “Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths.”(Ephesians 4:29)
- “Flee youthful lusts” (2 Timothy 2:22)
- “Do not…”
Anyone feeling tired? Do you feel worn out at the thought of living up to these standards?
Perhaps we should check this Christianity at the door and find something with a few less rules and fine print. Maybe something like the IRS instruction manual for taxes!
