Sorry for the ugly foot picture but I wanted to remind myself of something I did yesterday afternoon. I read a novel… Not a “leadership” book… Not a book about church planting or church growth… a detective novel. Completely “pointless”…something I need to do more often. Ironically I read the novel in our sun room that we built to relax in on beautiful “sunny”summer days just like yesterday…the sun room I hardly ever enter…
What about you? Do you feel “guilty” about being unproductive when you relax? Are there things you have purchased to enjoy with your family and never have a chance to use because you’re too “busy”? Why is “Resting” so hard to do?
2 On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. 3 And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.
