Daylight Savings Drag
By: Rick Boxx
March 9, 2015

The change to Daylight Savings Time in the spring often leaves me feeling deprived of rest for days. If this is true after losing one hour, imagine the impact my body experiences when God’s design is ignored and I work seven days a week, without a day to rest!

As a college graduate entering public accounting, I was expected to work 60 or more hours a week during tax season, many times on Sunday. By Monday, I was exhausted and redoing work I had produced on Sunday.

Genesis 2:3 teaches, “And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”

If you’ve become a workaholic, follow God’s lead and take a day to rest this week.
