Day 22: Is not your yoke easy and your burden {light}?

This scripture is sure to raise an eyebrow and cause our modern day skin to crawl and a shudder to run down our spines as we are justified in rejecting the idea of women being purchased as a bride.  I’m in full agreement.  Not at all should we think it’s ok in any way shape or form for another human being to be purchased by another. … More Day 22: Is not your yoke easy and your burden {light}?
