Man Lifting Rock

A father was watching his young son struggle to lift a heavy rock.

The little fellow grunted and strained, but couldn’t move it. The father said, “Son, are you sure you are using all your strength?” The exhausted boy said, “Yes, I am!” The father replied, “No, you are not. You haven’t asked me to help you.”

How true is this illustration! We grunt and struggle with our burdens in this earthly life, often forgetting the Father in heaven is always willing to aid us. Jesus said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).

Remember today that “all your strength” includes a loving Father in heaven! He’s willing to aid you. Are you willing to cast your burdens upon Him, and ask for His help?
