The importance of rest and sleep
Some people try very hard to be successful. They wake early. They go to bed late. They work every hour of the day. And they even try to work during the night.
God wants people to work and to be responsible. But he did not intend people to work continuously. That is why he created sleep. And sleep and rest are his gifts to the people whom he loves. He takes away their strain. He provides a period of calm so that their bodies can become strong again.
God wants people to know the importance of rest. He established one day each week as a day for rest (Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11). Jesus promises rest for the people who come to him (Matthew 11:28-30).
