Leviticus - a word on rest!

You can't work the whole time! 
You need to rest!
You will burn yourself out!

Do any of these statements sound familiar to you? It is often the concern of a loved one who speaks these words to us, especially if we are at the end of a long, busy run at work. Each one of these statements speaks a truth into our lives and reminds us of the words of God from Leviticus 23:

"You may work for six days each week, but on the seventh day all work must come to a complete stop. It is the Lord's Sabbath day of complete rest, a holy day to assemble for worship. It must be observed wherever you live." - v.3

So, when are you going to listen to this advice from Leviticus? What will it take for you to have a rest and to observe the sabbath? Please don't let yourself reach burnout before you take some time out.

Living in Grace
