Resting for Health (Thursdays are for Health)

51vgqldEQML“How much sleep did you get last night? Did you take a Sabbath last week or did you feel like you couldn’t afford to?

Rest is critically important to keeping you and me healthy now and in years to come, but we always tend to think we can get by with a little less of it.

Lack of sleep leads to a whole host of physical downfalls over time. To become a healthy pastor, you have to start resting like one.”

– Nelson Searcy, Steve Reynolds & Jennifer Dykes Henson
