FROM THE PULPIT: Some Bible verses and thoughts to consider

Published: Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 03:24 PM.

Life at home can be a real challenge because of tight finances or a strained relationship.

Many aspects of life keep us running. Even our recreation—supposed to "re-create" us— is tiring.

 We must rest from all our work and worry. We must have a day in which we make the time to rest and allow God to recreate us.

After all, if God took time to rest, who are we to think we must keep pushing 24-7, 365 days a year?

It seems pretty arrogant to think we must keep pushing without rest.

Genesis 2:15-17

“The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, 'You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.'"
