Day 35 – The Rhythm of Work and Rest

Verse of the Day

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. Exodus 20:8–11 (ESV)

Action Step

Make your sabbath rest truly productive. Rest the body and feed the soul with worship.


God wants us to work hard, but He also calls us to rest productively. Sabbath is not just time to do nothing. To truly recharge you need to not only rest the body, but refresh your soul.
