Take a break. When I used to cut apricots for drying, it was tiring and repetitive work, we received so much money per tray of halved apricots. It was necessary to pace myself if I wanted to earn a decent amount of money. I worked out that I needed to cut a tray of fruit every five minutes. My cutting knife almost grew into my hand. Apricot cutters didn't take breaks. Taking a break meant a loss of 50 cents a tray.
God made the universe in six days; then he took a break. When Jesus hung on the cross and darkness covered the land, God again took a break – a love break. He so loved the world he gave Jesus. When we are born again, we are accepting God's love-break, and are stopping and accepting Jesus as our rescuer.
We need to keep taking love-breaks to tell Jesus how much we love him in return for him loving us enough to die for us.
Have you taken a love break yet? Sit down in a quiet place and spend a few minutes meditating on the scriptures we read each day and thank him for his life in you.
Thought for the Day: Sometimes, good things fall apart so that little things fall into place.
