Does resting mean we stop growing?
Rest and sleep help children grow taller. Rests in music do not mean the song stops; rests can even set up a song’s climax.
Rest allows us to rejuvenate and grow. Thus, since rest is essential, we should rethink how we plan our day or even our lives. Maximizing our potential does not necessarily mean we fill our calendars with things to do; sometimes, it is when we plan for rest that we allow insights to visit us.
Matthew 11:28-30. Come to me, all you who labor and are overburdened, and I will give you rest.
