God is the giver of every good gift, which includes work and rest. Did you ever think of rest as being a godly habit? Most of us probably don’t because productivity is so highly elevated. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with productivity. In fact, productivity is good. However, productivity at the expense of rest, intentional, godly rest, is detrimental.
“If you are not feeding your soul on the realities of the presence, promises, and provisions of Christ, you will ask the people, situations, and things around you to be the messiah that they can never be.”
-Paul David Tripp
