Rest for the Weary

Researchers attached monitors to some Alpine swifts to record their activities. They were shocked to discover that these migrating birds apparently flew nonstop for 200 days. The birds stayed airborne for more than six months! Any eating, drinking or sleeping they did was while they were flying. From all the evidence, it appears that the birds did not stop moving during this time.

The swifts must have been awfully tired when they finally arrived at their destination!

Remember, we weren’t created to go nonstop for extended periods of time. We humans were designed to require a day of rest every week. Those who fail to acknowledge this will eventually pay a price.

“Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work…”—Deuteronomy 5:13-14.
