One temptation for assessing one’s value is to cheat. We cheat ourselves and others when we decide that value equals productivity. I am a big fan of productivity, but I have learned that the most productive among us are those who learn how to relax. It turns out that boredom enhances creativity.
When we cheat our evaluations of self and others by limiting our perspective on what is valuable, we are not living within the flow of rest that God encourages us to enter.
The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.
Mark 2:27 NIV
A day of rest is intended to be….restful. How can you find restful spots in your day?
