Learning To Reflect On My Schedule, Do The Right Things And To Rest
In summary of Psalm 127:2 it says, “It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone. Don’t you know he enjoys giving rest to those he loves?”
You rise up early, and go to bed late, and work hard. The Lord gives rest to His loved ones.
What this means to me:
It’s useless for me to work hard for things that are of my own making or desire. I can get busy working all night and day, getting up early and going to sleep late. However, if I’m not doing the things of God because I’m so busy, I’m just wasting a lot of time for not. God wants me to do his will in the world around me. I need to be careful to not work so much on my own things that I don’t have time for his work, and more importantly that I’m not getting enough rest. God wants me to get my proper rest. In this verse God says, “It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone. Don’t you know he enjoys giving rest to those he loves?” (Psalm 127:2, MSG) Since I’m busy most of the time I need to keep this verse close at heart. This may mean that I need to do less, but not less for God, but less in other areas so I’ll have more time to do what matters most. In summary, I need to continue to review my schedule and all the things that I’m involved with. Some things may need to go, others I just may need to do differently or more efficiently. I also need to plan in / schedule proper rest.
