Rest is important. It is hard to do when we have things we want to do, like playing games, meeting friends, and going places. But did you know that God rested?
“By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.” Genesis 2:2
After God had completed the creation of the world, He chose to rest. Learning and playtime is hard work for children, and going to work and taking care of children is hard work for mommies and daddies.
Taking time to rest as a family is important. God even made it a commandment, because He knew how much we all needed it.
“For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a day of sabbath rest to the LORD.” Exodus 35:2
So, if God commanded us to do it, let’s make rest part of our week!
How can you rest with your family?
