Return to your rest, O my soul, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.

Psalm 116:7

We all need a break in the action from time to time.¬† Resting¬† isn’t just a good idea- it is a command of God: “Six days you shall do your work, but the seventh day you shall rest and keep Sabbath, that your ox and your donkey may rest, and the son of your bondwoman, and the alien, may be refreshed” ( Exodus 23:12) The Lord added that “even in plowing time and in harvest you shall rest [on the Sabbath]” ( Exodus 34:21)

That means that for one day a week we are to withdraw from common labor and to rest. Don’t work that day even in the busy seasons. Dedicate that day to spending time with God, worshiping Him. Start your week off right by getting back to what is really important- honoring God.
