Devotion for the week of February 6

Bible Point: Jesus cares for us.

Key Verse: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28).

Read this quote and talk it over with your family.
"In our efforts to avoid the necessary pains of discipline we miss the easy yoke and light burden." - Dallas Willard, The Spirit of the Disciplines

  • What in the world does this quote mean?
  • What are some areas in your life i which you are being tempted to go the "easy" (undisciplined) way because all your friends seem to be going that "easy" way?
  • In reality, is it way or hard to avoid the "necessary pains of discipline"? Explain.
