In the gospel reading, Jesus addresses God as Father which reflects the intimate relationship that Jesus shared with God. God is further addressed as Lord of heaven and earth, a title that denotes universal sovereignty. Jesus then appeals to the wisdom tradition saying that the hidden things of God are not revealed to the worldly wise, but to those who are dependent on others and, consequently, receptive. Jesus’ invitation is reminiscent of the invitation to submit oneself to Wisdom. He invites his hearers to take on his yoke, to accept the responsibilities that he will lay on them. If they do so, they too will be blessed with the revelation of God.
