Quotemeal: Nov. 21st, 2023

Tuesday, November 21, 2023

"Does God indeed need to rest? Of course not! But did God choose to rest? Yes. Why? Because God subjected creation to a rhythm of rest and work that He revealed by observing the rhythm Himself, as a precedent for everyone else. In this way, He showed us a key to order in our private worlds."
— Gordon McDonald
