Now ask yourself what that yoke was.

Jesus said MY yoke is easy.
And he wasn't talkin' about eggs - no yolk!

I just don't want the other choice... I'm taking the easy one

The yoke is very easy. All we have to do is love and forgive others the way we want to be loved and forgiven.

I can't easily afford gold, pearls, or expensive clothes yet.
When I can, I'd rather use that money to help someone get on their feet.

Anyway, women can look good without all the costly items.

I wear makeup (false lashes, the works). I have yet to feel condemned. My body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, right? So, my body should be presentable and attractive in all areas (even if it takes a little "help").

For the bolded words I give you a big rep. For the rest, I don't have any opinion. Generally women look good to men even without "the works."

Today, the simplicity of what you have said here has stayed with me. The kingdom of God has come to you Sheila.

The church at Corinth had a problem and Paul was trying to calm it down. It wasn't written to the whole world.

There's a lot of Scripture like that, btw.

Excellent point, quoted for importance of repetition.
