(28) TRUE LOVE CAN MAKE HEAVY BURDENS LIGHT.

28. TRUE LOVE CAN MAKE HEAVY BURDENS LIGHT.
Genesis 29:20 – “So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her.”
Working seven years in order to get married is a long time, but, as they say, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” The years just seemed like a few days to Jacob because of his love. And so it should be with us as Christians. When we really love the Lord, keeping His commandments will not be a burden but a joy (cf. I John 5:3).
