sleeping: sabbath, rest, and the work of God, Genesis 2:1-4
Children over time learn how to fall asleep through regular rituals and routine. Adults aren’t much different. If rest is learned through habit and repetition, so is restlessness. On the seventh day of creation, even God rested. Society tells us that we shouldn’t slow down or stop. Hard and never ending work is rewarded. As people of faith we are encouraged to learn the rich rewards of rest.
