Sabbath is not dependent upon our readiness to stop. We do not stop when we are finished. We do not stop when we complete our phone calls, finish our projects, get through the stack of messages, or get out this report due tomorrow. We stop because it is time to stop.-Wayne Muller
If you can’t take time to do nothing, you’re a slave to doing.
Doing nothing is a radical, revolutionary act.
It frees you from the universal slavery of our age; slavery to the clock.
The clock measures doing, but not being.
– Peter Kreeft
The pace of life and our preoccupation with unimportant things take so much of our attention. The significant things, like taking time to develop friendship, to read, and pray. . to listen to God, these all get sacrificed on the alter of good works and Christian busyness.
