CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible

Let us not drag our burdens through the day, but drop all our loads of care and be free to carry His yoke and His burden. Let us make the happy exchange, giving ours and taking His. Let the covenant be: "Thou shalt abide for Me, I also for thee." So shall we lose our heaviest …

Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions.
