The IVP New Testament Commentary Series – Rest for the Little Ones (11:25-30)
Rest for the Little Ones (11:25-30)

Just as Israel was wrongly secure in its status before God vis-a-vis the Gentiles (vv. 20-24), so the wise and powerful failed to recognize that God favored the children, the meek (vv. 25-30). Jesus summons not the mighty or wise to follow him, but the humble laden with heavy burdens (v. 28; compare 23:4), the weary, like Israel in exile, hoping in God alone (Is 40:29-31).
