I think the church needs to emphasize one day of rest.  I do not mean “Attend Church On the Sabbath Or Else”.  I mean tell congregations “Look, the Lord took a day.  Trust Him that it is ok for you to take a day.  Encourage a day of REST in your family.  It does not have to be Sunday, and everyone does not have to take the same day, but our society is 100% on 100% of the time.  We are burning out our mothers and fathers, our singles and children.”

It is time to introduce rest, not as a command, but as a gift from the Lord.
