 Your Rhema Verse of the Day: 

Here’s today’s Bible Society verse of the day ..

From Matthew Chapter 11 Verses 28 to 30: Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

And from the Maori Bible;

"Haere mai ki ahau, e koutou katoa e mauiui ana, e taimaha ana, a maku koutou e whakaokioki. Tangohia taku ioka ki runga ki a koutou, kia whakaakona koutou e ahau; he ngakau mahaki hoki toku, he ngakau papaku: a e whiwhi koutou ki te okiokinga mo o koutou wairua. He ngawari hoki taku ioka, he mama taku pikaunga."

Today's verse is brought to you by the Bible society.
