Rest Impacts Finances

Do you struggle to rest?

I’m not good at resting. Our heavenly Father rested after he created the world and He gave us the Sabbath to rest. The problem is that many of us don’t really know how. Forbes reports that despite a nearly $65 billion a year sleep aid market, millions of Americans are sleep-deprived. The average adult should get 7-9 hours of sleep every night. Without it, our emotional well-being, physical health, performance and safety on the job are affected. Not enough rest also impacts your finances. Believers who work as unto the Lord and serve sacrificially can grow weary. We fight battles raging in and around us which can build into physical, psychological and emotional fatigue. Add in financial stress, and the need for rest is absolutely essential. The Bible references a time when Jesus instructed his disciples: “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” Like them, we must step out of stress, trust God to provide and rest in Him.

Working in the midst of Covid lockdowns while trying to balance family life  has been stressful for many people. Some employers offer new hires paid time off before they even start to work! This is a gift for those who can’t afford time off. Many choose to visit family and friends before having to adjust to a new job and routine. Employers know that well-rested employees perform better! So let’s obey God and prioritize rest and get some time away this year.
