Ideas Regarding Your Sabbath

13 Apr

As we approach the weekend and Lord’s Day worship, I wanted to post some thoughts from Dr. Tim Keller on practical ways of taking a Sabbath (as found in an article from Redeemer City to City):

1. I suggest that to be within the biblical boundaries, you need to have at least one full day off, and the equivalent of an additional half-day off during the week.

2.  Take some time for sheer inactivity (uplanned and unstructured time of rest).

3. Take some time for avocational activity (something(s) that are sheer pleasure for you).

4. Allow for contemplative rest, recreational rest, and aesthetic rest.

5. Consider whether you are an introvert or extrovert (this will help you understand what “recharges” you)

6. Don’t necessarily count family time as Sabbath time.

7. Honor both micro and macro-rhythms in your seasons of rest.
