Yesterday we read some verses from Genesis. Today and for the next few days, we will continue to look at verses found in Genesis.
My first year of college, I thought I was very smart. At the end of the first semester, I studied very hard for exams. I forced myself to stay awake and study all night. I skipped many meals. And I didn’t take much time to pray.
Later, I found out that I didn’t do well on the exams. But I noticed that the people who got good grades hadn’t stayed up all night or gone without food. Those people took time to rest, to talk with God and to strengthen their bodies.
In our Bible Reading today, we learn that when God was finished creating the world, He rested. Later, God commanded the Israelites to rest on the seventh day of each week. God wants us to take care of our bodies and to rest. Then we can be strong to serve Him!
