As we incorporate leisure into the mainstream of our world, we lift ourselves above the grit and grind of mere existence. (Charles Swindoll, author)

Swindoll further suggested that when God created humans, his intention was that they enhance and reproduce the rest of creation. What is sometimes forgotten is his instruction to take time off, to observe a Sabbath—one day a week off from work. Workaholics are discovering the wisdom of such instruction. We must plan for rest and recreation as much as we plan our work.

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)
