Rest from School

Genesis 2:3

Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.


Is there someone in your home who just finished a year or a semester of school? Whether you’re a teacher or a student, you need a break from all that hard work. I have good news.

It’s okay to rest when you’ve given your best.

God spent days creating this masterpiece we live in. He carved out lakes and created mountains. God gave us beautiful flowers and trees for our landscapes. He populated our landscapes with interesting animals He created delicate butterflies and cuddly bunnies.

And on the seventh day, he rested.

God says it’s okay to rest when you’ve done your best.

Now, it’s summer, and we’re celebrating. My kids have studied and tested, and now they’re getting rested. We plan to have a summer vacation with lots of activity and discovery. They’re not taking a break from learning, just worksheets and testing.

What do you do to rest after months of hard work?
