Exodus 35:2-3"For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day shall be your holy day, a Sabbath of rest to the LORD. Whoever does any work on it must be put to death. Do not light a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day."
I can work 7 days a week and nearly 24 hours a day. I love what I do! But even when you love what you do there is no excuse for working too much. I once had a wise pastor tell me, "Timmy never sacrifice your family on the altar of ministry." What a great statement. It applies to us all, no matter what we do for a living, or for fun. You can replace the word "ministry" with whatever it is you do and it's something you should live by.
I've noticed in my own life that when I take a day of rest "a Sabbath" I get more done in those 6 days then I would have got done in 7 days. This is especially try if you are married and/or if you have children. Time with spouse and children is never lost time.
My Challenge: Take a day of rest each week, and just enjoy those closest to you!
I want to accomplish one thing in my life, besides being a great husband, a great father and having a great head of hair! And that one thing is to help people have healthier happier relationships!
