The invitation is still open, and these words from Jesus have been a needed comfort time and time again. “Come to me, all you who are weay and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

    One of the most helpful pieces of advice I ever received in ministry was from a good friend. In the midst of a conflict, he suggested that I read “The Tale of Three Kings” by Gene Edwards.

    It’s about Saul, David, and Absolom. And what David teaches us about conflict in the body of Christ.

    It’s a great book, full of insights.

  2. Rusty,

    Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it. Have a blessed end of the week.

  3. Hey, Jason. I notice you have a Church of Christ blogroll. I’ve recently begun a blog for preachers, http://transformingsermons.blogspot.com . I preach for the New York Avenue Church of Christ in Oak Ridge, TN. Peace.
