Six Days - "You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but on the seventh day you must stop working, even during the seasons of plowing and harvest." (Exodus 34:21) Are you tired? The body can get worn out after a long day of school, a busy day of work, or a full day of fun and play. Our souls can get worn out too, burdened by doubts and guilt and fear. Even God Himself recognized the need for rest aer creang the earth (Gen.2:3; Ex 20:11). Follow God's example by carving out me in your busy schedule to find rest for both body and soul. God's Old Testament people worked six days a week, 12 or more hours per day. They needed a day of rest, primarily for the soul. So too must we recognize a "seventh day," whenever we determine it, for resng and replenishing ourselves physically and spiritually. God commanded this of the Jews even when the season demanded more of their me. To the extent that we are able, we, too, need to make time for worship and rest a priority, whether it's tax season, Christmas season, or cleaning season. In worship we enjoy the true rest God offers us when He assures us that our sins are all forgiven and that we belong to Him eternally. Prayer: "We thank You, Jesus, for patiently having had mercy on us, that we can rest in the work of salvation that You have accomplished for us. Amen."
