STOP AND THINK – Diversions are as essential to our health and personal development as schools are to our education, or as food is to our nourishment. (Charles Swindoll, pastor and author)
We are often so occupied in the pursuit of success that we become completely absorbed with our jobs and our progress toward achieving our goals. We don’t take any time off, enjoy an occasional vacation, or just relax for a few hours. As Swindoll suggests, however, the failure to unwind a bit may deprive us of good health and personal development.
There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his (Hebrews 4:9–10).
