“By the seventh day God had finished the work He had been doing, so on the seventh day He rested from all His work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work creating that He had done.” Genesis 2:2-3
Recent studies have concluded that lack of sleep can be fatal in extreme instances. We should work hard, but we should also take time to rest. Our Lord and Savior took moments away from the crowds to reflect. God, Himself, rested from all His work. In this time of modern conveniences that keep us constantly connected, we are able to accomplish more and more each day. Take the time, however, to disconnect. Rest refreshes and restores us for our daily work. And for our Christian service.
May the Lord be with you today and always.
