In India, if you’re walking through rural roads, you’ll occasionally come across a post with a sturdy shelf about shoulder height. It is called “Soma Tonga,” which means “resting place.” When people are traveling with a heavy load, they place their heavy load on the shelf for relief. Once rested, they continue their journey. What do you think Christians in India call Jesus? “My Soma Tonga.” “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
