Today’s 31 Days of Free Writes word is REST.
And on the 7th Day God Rested. Genesis 2:2
One of the commandments is even “Remember to Keep Holy the Sabbath.”
A sabbath essentially is a day of rest. Something in this day and age we have so much trouble doing. We always have to be doing something. When we go back to work on Monday and people ask what we did over the weekend if you say “Nothing, I rested.” People look at you like you’re crazy.
Resting is so important for EVERYONE and SOCIETY! If we don’t rest we go crazy. There are people I know that are afraid to take vacations because they are afraid of losing their job. Taking a vacation isn’t in the best interest of the company you are supposed to be loyal to…its in the best interest of you (because you know we’re so selfish).
But people have forgotten about all the psychology studies that have been done that prove that rest and vacations away from work to let our brains rest and be creative and dormant and have fun are GOOD for our bodies! They are good for our minds. They let us be rejuvenated from our everyday lives.
Like I started this post with even GOD rested after creating the world. If God can rest then I think even we can afford to rest from our mundane jobs and lives and go somewhere and have fun and forget about our everyday life!
