Insight

Do you fear a day of rest?

"By forgetting to stop, we forget God."

Forgetting to stop "robs God of glory and His significance in my life."

"Humans were created on the sixth day; their first day was a day of rest."

"Your fear of stopping might be evidence of what you're really worshipping."

If you cannot come away and rest, your end will be idolatry and disobedience.
