Matthew 23: 4 & 11: 28-30

(6. Legalism ignores individuality.)


4      Jesus said of the religious leaders, "They tie up heavy loads and lay them on the shoulders of others; but they themselves are unwilling to move them with even a finger."


28     Come unto me all who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest (Sabbath means "rest").

29     Take my yoke ("yoke" was a familiar term for "Law") upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart (in contrast to Law), and you shall find rest for your souls.

30      For my yoke is easy (literally "well fitted to the individual") and my burden is light.

On to No. 7
