Rhythms in life are so important. In the first chapter of the first book of the Bible God establishes rhythm. He creates and works for six days and on the seventh he rests. The amazing thing is that God didn’t have to rest…he can’t tire. So He his communicating something much bigger than a six day work week. He is setting a pattern we are to mimic. Leviticus 25 highlights the seventh year as a year for fields to rest and rejuvenate. God is saying that rhythm and rest provided the needed time to produce again.
I ran across this video recently. It communicates the value of time off in an incredibly powerful way. We need to pause. God made us to pause. Not just to sleep but to create again. Check it out.
