“Then people go off to their work, where they labor until evening.” (Psalm 104:23, NLT)
Way back in Genesis 2:3, God set a pattern for humans to follow: He worked six days and rested on the seventh.
So go about your day and accomplish the tasks at hand. Whether you work in the home or outside of it, paid or unpaid, do all that lies before you today for the glory of God. But when it’s time to rest, never feel guilty for doing so. God created man and woman. He made the day and the night. He created the first workweek, and the Sabbath was His idea!
Prayer: God help me find the right balance between work and rest. Amen.
