Preferred Rest

My mother had her shoulder replaced a couple of days ago. Since she had a private room in the hospital, my wife spent the past two nights with her. She says she slept pretty well in the recliner chair that was in the room. However, as she was gathering Mom’s things in preparation to go home, Karen looked in a closet and found, not one, but two, roll-away beds!

If only someone had told her about the beds, she might have rested better at night. While the recliner was somewhat comfortable, she, like most people, would have preferred sleeping in a bed.

There are a lot of people who think they are getting all the rest they need, but, unknown to them, there is something missing in their lives—they need Jesus. Let’s help them understand about the spiritual rest that only comes through him.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”—Matthew 11:28.
