We’ve all been through times when we’re extra-busy and rest is rare. The demands of work are take over our life with little or no time off. But even in normal times, work can dominate our thinking so much that we forget to look after ourselves and others. God is squeezed out in the stress. God saw that tendency in Israel too and, in Exodus 23:10-13, provided a special remedy for over-work or over-thinking about work. It was this. Take the year off!
