Humans were made to rest.
God created rest.
God calls us to practice holy rest on a weekly basis. Scripture calls this Sabbath. Our spiritual, mental, and physical health is affected in negative ways when we neglect this gift of rest.
We are running at such an exhausting pace in our culture. We need to slow down and heed the command to rest.
We do not rest from the work.
We rest for the work.
WE REST TO BE READY TO DO
THE WORK OF GOD.
Being intentional about rest is not lazy. In fact, it is hard work. IT TAKES INTENTIONALITY TO TRULY REST IN THE LORD.
