(April 23) "Is Obeying the Lord a Burden?" -- meditation on 1 John 5:3

1 John 5:3 says, "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome."

Let's consider this statement. This section of Scripture is clear and says that we display our love for God, in part, by keeping the commandments He has given us. That is simple enough. What seems, perhaps, a stretch for some is the added clarification that the commandments we keep are not burdensome.
