It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late and work your worried fingers to the bone. (The Bible)

Do you know any “workaholics”? They may accomplish a lot on their jobs, but at what price? Some of us have had to learn the hard way that we need to take time off—a day a week, maybe. Or at least a few planned days away from the office or factory. The Bible writer continued, “Don’t you know [God) enjoys giving sleep to those he loves.” How healthful it is to follow reasonable working hours, get sufficient rest, and take extended time off for some “R & R.”

You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day must be a Sabbath day of complete rest. (Exodus 31:15)
