The Yoke is a very basic tool. It exists in every culture in various forms. Yokes are found in gyms where they are used for weight lifting, on dairy farms for carrying milk, on the streets of many cities for moving large quantities of goods. A yoke is a useful tool. This Sunday we will reflect on Jesus' invitation to take up his Yoke. He does not leave us wondering what to do with his Yoke, and it is helpful to us to remember what it's for.
