Why Planning Rest Before Work Is Smart

Sabbath rest is not about just taking a break. It’s about putting an end to the restlessness of self, and self-provision, that keeps us living distracted, frantic, and fragmented lives of dissatisfaction. 

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we talk about why planning your rest before work is smart and crucial to living the life God intended for you. And we’ll give a few ways to get started.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • God’s original intent for the Sabbath and how it always pointed to Jesus.
  • Why Sabbath rest is a lot more than just “not working”.
  • The importance of planning your rest before you plan your work.
  • Ways you can get started living out of rest as part of your lifestyle.

Get started here…

Planning Rest Before Work

From this episode:

“If true sabbath-rest is resting in who God is and who he has made us to be, then taking the time to be present with one another… present to the point that we seek to notice and acknowledge the unique beauty, creativity, and image-bearing of other people, is a form of sabbath rest that is wired into our schedules.”
