…and so to rest….

Was just thinking today that the culmination of the Creation story is not really the creation of men and women, but the establishing of a day of rest. I don’t want to get into the whole business of the Sabbath Day in my blog as that would lead to controversy that would take things away from where I think things are to go. Rather I simply want to ask is the Sabbath Principle built into your life?

This is an area that I did not pay enough regard to when involved in Parish ministry. I wonder too, if it is something that often those in ministry do not give enough regard  in terms of the well bing of others in the overall planning  of church life, meetings etc. Could say more, but it is after midnight, so it would be a bit hypocritical to continue!

Good night folks!

God bless

    If we are to be good stewards of everything the Lord has given us, this includes our physical bodies. God rested. We should too. Studies have shown that we are more productive etc when we have taken time to rest. Research has also shown the opposite: we become less efficient and invite various illnesses when we neglect physical maintenance like proper eating, and rest.
    Good enough for God? Good for me too! 🙂

    Dear Kenny and All

    I picked up recommendations from NT Wright in his Pepperdine lectures to John H Walton “The Lost World of Genesis One”. Very good indeed on the Sabbath rest of Genesis 1.
    I am so glad I followed this one up.

    Blessings, Paul
