Pearl 273: Rhythm

TOPIC: Organization and Worship

"Then he said to them, 'The Sabbath was made for man,
not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord
even of the Sabbath'" - Mark 2:27-28.

God directed man to organize work around some time to rest. The Jews made the Sabbath a special day filled with legalistic parameters, but Jesus tried to correct that attitude and received more than a little opposition. The Sabbath was to be a time of rest and a change of pace from the workaday world - along with a time to worship God. That will require that you establish a weekly rhythm to your schedule. Do you organize your world to include rest and refreshment? What do you do to refresh? With whom? Is worship part of your organizational strategy?

Lord, I don't want to be rigid and inflexible where organizing my life is concerned, but I don't want to be scattered and unfocused either. I need to make worship and rest part of my life's rhythm and that will require me to make and keep my priorities as I structure my life. Help me to have the focus I need.
