“Sabbath ceasing is meant for everyone and every living creature our lives touch: our children, our animals, all in our household. God rests in order to delight in his creation. So too are we made to rest in order to engage our creational identity.” – Susan Currie
Sabbath rest is the turnkey to the deeper life. Ceasing can be the most difficult of all the Sabbath rhythms, as it requires us to stop what we normally do in order to embrace that which offers us more of the abundant life. Sabbath reminds us not to be productivity machines, but instead be people who value relationships, first and foremost with God. As God says “trust me” he knows how hard that will be for us, especially if we have a tendency toward a hurried and harried life. Ceasing work and technology are two examples of stopping in order to rest well.
