Say Yes to Rest: Sabbath as Escape (Matthew 11:28-30)
Sabbath interrupts our routines and helps us reset our bodies, minds, and spirits into a healthier space. Whether our lives are comfortable or difficult there are always things we need to escape from, even just temporarily. We already know we could all use a break, but what we struggle with is how to take that break. We think we can’t take a break until all our tasks are finished, but that’s impossible. There’s a never-ending list of things we need to finish. Perhaps instead we could think of Sabbath as a resting place along our journey of life—and that’s where we find what we need to be able to continue on that journey.
