For a wholesome living, the bible recommends a day of rest every seven days. Most of us consider Sunday as that day of rest. However, because Sunday is free we feel alright to commit a little bit of that time...then one more...and just another one more until we end up exhausted at the end of the day. Then we realize that the purpose of Sunday has been totally defeated.
"Six days do your work, but on the seventh day do not work, so that your ox and your donkey may rest and the slave born in your household, and the alien as well, may be refreshed. Be careful to do everything I have said to you." ~ Exodus 23:12-13aI'm here resting now...and yet, I did not choose to rest. I am being reminded to take rest more seriously.
