Hermit Asks: Why Learn from Jesus?

While pondering Jesus' words in Matthew 11, "learn from me," this morning the nothing Catholic hermit asked Him, "Why and how?"

Then His words filled the silence:  "for I am meek and humble of heart."

Yes, those are very good reasons as to why we ought learn from Jesus.  Being meek and humble of heart proposes Himself to our minds and hearts.  He adds that if we learn from Him, for He is meek and humble of heart, we will find rest for ourselves.

This nothing Catholic hermit desires to learn, and it desires to find rest.  Does the rest Jesus say will be ours as a result of learning from Him as He is meek and humble of heart, mean the kind of rest that is peace of body, mind, heart, and spirit?

Surely.  It makes perfect sense, and Jesus is omniscient.  He knows all that we need, and He knows how to be the perfect teacher.  The apostles called Jesus "Master" and "Teacher" often enough, and "Lord."

Perhaps today one of the lessons Jesus is going to teach this nothing hermit, is the immensity and beauty of His meekness and humility of His heart.  Perhaps this hermit will experience the effects of Jesus' teaching, and there will be rest today, on many levels.

It all sounds and seems most positive.  Perhaps there is something of meekness and humility of heart that is so appealing, that anyone would desire learning not only whatever Jesus wishes to teach us, but that we desire to learn His meekness and humility of heart.  Yes, this hermit would love to learn His meekness and humility of heart and to offer others, as well, His rest.

Learning from Jesus fascinates!  His lessons are substantive and real!

God bless His Real Presence in us!  His Real Presence is in us, as is His meekness and humility of His heart and His peace!  Does it not make sense that we learn meekness and humility in our hearts, bequeathed by Jesus, along with His peace--in order to abide with Him, to be in His Real Presence?
