His Yoke Is Easy

I'm sure that others have figured this one out, but I had some spiritual learning today in Gospel Doctrine class. In considering Matthew 11:28-30, particularly "for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" I realized that we will never understand how difficult and heavy His burden actually was. He took upon Himself all the sins and sorrows of the world for all time -.including mine. And that is what made Him able to yoke us together to be one by means of Atonement. He's carrying our burdens, yet they are easy and light to Him because He loves us more than we'll ever understand.
