Read: Galatians 4:4-5
Study: The law was a very important part of the Jewish faith. The law was a meant to guide and help people lead a life that reflected God. Over time, the followers of the law became more and more legalistic in their adherence to it. This meant that the law was no longer a blessing but a burden. Jesus came to lift that burden and remind people of the purpose of the law. What in your life should be a blessing but is instead a burden? Perhaps there is something in your life that you need to ask Christ to come in and change. Think about this today.
Prayer: Christ who lifts our burdens, I come to you today with thanks. Thank you for reminding us that the rules you have given us are not meant to be e burden but are intended to be a blessing. Help me to see the blessings around me. Amen.
