Do you find yourself often saying, “I’m just so busy and tired” when asked how you’re doing?
In ministry especially, it’s easy to view our schedules as competitive. We want to fill every waking moment with intentionality, and can be quick to view downtime as laziness or as shirking our responsibilities and calling.
But God is passionate about rest. In fact, he’s so passionate about it that he devoted an entire commandment to Sabbath rest. He knows our human tendency to over-work and made sure to warn us against it. Rest is part of your calling, and neglecting it both disobeys God and keeps you from doing ministry in your full capacity.
William Vanderbloemen shares why pastors need to take a break, especially as we head into Q4 and the busiest season of the year for churches.
