Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace.
Day 1: Read Luke 10:38-42. Think of a time when you have been a Mary and think of a time when you have been a Martha. What was your frame of mind and where were you in the rest cycle?
Day 2: Read Psalm 23. What does God require from us in Psalm 23? What does He offer in return?
Day 3: Read Luke 5:1-11. What lesson do the fishermen learn about work here?
Day 4: Read Genesis 2:2-3. Did God need to rest after the work of creation? Why do you think He rested?
Day 5: Read Mark 2:27. What exactly is the Sabbath as described here? How do we often get this backwards?
Day 6: Read Philippians 4:6-7. What kind of rest is described here? How do we get that kind of rest?
