Rest, It Is Important

Exodus 31:17 NLT

“It is a permanent sign of my covenant with the people of Israel. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day he stopped working and was refreshed.”

Exodus 34:21 NLT

“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.”

 

If God rested, why do we often brag that we do not? Does it make us better to not rest?  This is something I struggle with every day, rest at times feels like I’m being lazy, but if God did it and felt it was important, when who am I to not rest?
