I think our affluent culture certainly provides ample opportunity to fulfill the expectations of this word. Running water in our homes, air-conditioning, heating, etc. Our refrigerators supply an immediate in-home food source. We can sit in a car or plane and be transported to any place we want. Instant access to any visual gratification we could wish for. It could be all about me and my comfort and happiness. I’m not sure how much Jesus slept or slumbered or lazied around. Lord, help me understand the difference between laziness and rest. Forgive me when rest turns into laziness, help me work efficiently for You, and grant me wisdom.
I love You God. I trust You God. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Thank You God.
