Fitness is all the rage today, and of course some carry it too far. They seek to push themselves seven days a week, and their credo is, No pain, no gain!
Well, the expertsincluding Dr. Kenneth Cooper, father of modern aerobicsare now saying it wont work. The new credo for fitness is, No rest, no gain! Isnt that interesting?
This is not a new idea, however. The Good Lord said way back in the beginning that we need a day of rest every week. He modeled that by resting himself and setting aside a time to restthe Sabbathto appreciate what he had done.
The truth of the matter is, our brains and our bodies need time for rest. God put it there in creation, and we honor his creation when we live as he intended.
