I remember visiting Agricultural Museums and seeing many yokes, of leather and wood, used on farms in rural Ontario.  Usually they are a 'double' yoke, for two - for two beasts of burden.  This brings new hope when Jesus tells us that his "yoke is easy, and my burden light" because He is in the yoke at our side.  We are not alone!  We are not only responding to God under our own power!  Jesus shares the yoke with us.   We can and will do the work of the Lord, because he accompanies us constantly.  Thanks be to God!
