I feel like so many people get confused about this topic. The Bible encourages us to make our life count for the Kingdom of God and yet it tells us to rest. People often wear themselves out trying to ensure they’ve made their life count for Him. God is not a slave driver. In fact, He considers it an act of obedience, to rest.

God knows that we are at our best for Him, when we come refreshed and prepared to give 100% of ourselves to what is in front of us. We cannot give 100% if we wear ourselves out by constant doing. Let’s be in His presence today and let it refresh us, so we can be ready to give our all to the tasks before us.
