Rest is an Investment (Life Group)

  Rest is an Investment (Blog, 6th March 2012)

 

Icebreaker: What was the longest time you’ve gone for without sleep?

God rested on the seventh day, having created the earth for six days (Genesis 2:2). God set us an example. He showed us a powerful secret to health and productivity. Rest time is restoration time. Work time is exerting time, but rest time is receiving time.

Jesus had an extremely busy schedule on the earth. He was a people person. He preached to thousands and healed people continuously. But He understood the importance of rest. He scheduled rest time (Mark 6:31). Jesus continued to separate Himself from the crowd for a time of rejuvenation.

Discussion questions

  • Do you enjoy rest or does it make you feel guilty?
  • Can you remember any past rest time that had a positive impact on your work and relationships?
  • If you had a whole week to yourself, what would you do to rejuvenate?
  • How frequently do you plan relaxation time? Do you think this is something you need to make time for?
