It is rare for a leader to ask people to follow him because he is meek and lowly. But, Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest for your souls.” (Mathew 11:28-29).
History’s most notorious leaders have called people to follow them because the leader claims to be great. He seeks their help to make him greater. That usually does not work out well for the leader or the people.
Jesus is different. He bids the laborer and the weary to come to him for rest. His concern is for people, not for himself. He calls the meek and lowly (humble) and claims meekness and humility for himself. He identifies with those he calls. This is his greatness.
So, you who are weary, meek, and feeling lowly, hear his call, “Come to me.” Learn about him, commit yourself to him as one oxen would be yoked to another, and find rest for your soul.
