Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.
By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.
And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. (Genesis 2: 1-3, NIV)
To say we live in a fast paced world is an understatement. Most of the time, we meet ourselves coming and going. And technology, that's supposed to make our lives easier, occupies our minds and time all the more. Is that a good thing to be so connected all day, every day?
Sometimes we need to unplug. Sometimes we need to reflect. Sometimes we need to rest. Without rest and renewal we become exhausted, unhealthy--mentally, emotionally, and physically drained.
God knew what he was doing when he rested after his great work. What is rest to you?
