[28] Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [29] Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. [30] For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
1. Gentleness helps people grow

2 Samuel 22:36 You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your gentleness made me great.

1 Thessalonians 2:7 But we were gentle among you, like a nursing mother taking care of her own children.

2. Those who have fallen in sin
