Jesus compare himself to an old ox, wonderfully patient, and wonderfully strong.

Wednesday, 12/13/17

When Jesus tells[ us to take his yoke upon us to learn from him, he is comparing himself to an  old ox who is able to work through the longest days without wearying.

Oxen are such wonderful animals, wonderfully strong, yet wonderfully patient.

For the most part a farmer will have a single ox pulling his plow; but for busting through hard clay, he will at times yoke two oxen under a double curved wooden yoke.

At such times, if you are the younger ox, you will do well in following the old ox's example in never fighting against the farmer's urging.
