I love Charles Swindoll's Devotions...What was the only thing Christ called "easy?"

Considering Quitting?
by Charles R. Swindoll

Come to Me, all who are weary 
and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest . . . 
for My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Matthew 11:28, 30

Every achievement worth remembering is stained with the blood of diligence and scarred by the wounds of disappointment. 

To quit, to run, to escape, to hide---none of these options solve anything. They only postpone the acceptance of, and reckoning with, reality.

Churchill put it well: "Wars are not won by evacuations." . . .

Giving thought to giving up?

Considering the possibility of quitting? . . .

Don't! . . . The only time the Lord ever used the word "easy" was when He referred to a yoke.
