Season 3: Espisode 86: When It's Time to Sit Down

When it’s time to Sit Down.png

We live in a society where being busy and “on the grind” is glorified, and where the idea of being successul means “I’m working while you’re sleeping”. But did you know that this type of thinking is counterproductive to what God wants us to be doing?

Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens”, and that includes rest. God wants us to be balanced, and we can’t do that if we’re constantly on the go. We must allow for Sabbath time in our lives, and to do incorporate that type of rest more than once in a while. We must take heed, and follow through with the times when God tells us that it’s time to sit down.
