In Genesis 1:1-2:2, we are given the story of God’s creation. The short version is this: God created the universe and all that is in it in 6 days, and on the 7th day he RESTED! If the God who created you took time to REST, what makes you think you don’t need REST? He made us human, needing food, water, shelter, love, and above all, REST. The need for REST allows the basic needs to do their work in our bodies, allows our minds to recuperate from the day’s toils. Then on the sabbath, to allow other things to REST as well. Back then, the REST was also for the animals and servants. Today, we may need to REST from technology also. Did you REST this weekend? If not, try to make it your goal for your next day off. Your mind, body and soul will thank you.
