If we concentrated on the really important stuff in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles. (Doug Larson, columnist)

It’s a kind of “tongue-in-cheek” axiom, but it is something to think about. We are often so busy with the “important” activities of life—like work or community service—that we fail to take time to “smell the roses” or go fishing. Everyone needs some down time to be refreshed and restored mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest. (Hebrews 4:10-11).
