I just Heard on the radio playing at a café where I am waiting on a copy that it is national workers day here in South Africa. It is known some places as may day. But as I grew up I remember the May 1 parades in the news from Moscow. Have times changed?
Here is a shot of Port Elizabeth which is where I am hanging out for a couple days waiting for a flight back north to Europe.
Work is good. We should work hard. But we were not designed to work like machines. We are designed to rest from our work. And to sleep. Sleep is the daily reminder that we are not God and that we must trust HIM for the increase after having done our part. Sabbath is a commandment, not a suggestion.
So go sit and be still…
