EARN all you can. SAVE all you can. GIVE all you can. ENJOY it all.

“Nearly all that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery—[is] the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.”

-C.S. Lewis

Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Instruct them to do as many good deeds as they can and to help everyone. Remind the rich to be generous and share what they have. This will lay a solid foundation for the future, so they will know what true life is like.

-1 Timothy 6:17-19

“The Sabbath is an invitation to trust God with all the things on our to-do lists. It’s an opportunity to say, God, this seems urgent and important, but I choose to let it sit until tomorrow and instead rest and enjoy this day that You have made. I choose to trust that You are fully in control and that You will work out all the things on my plate."

-Bob Lotich

“The rest of God…is not a reward for finishing. It’s not a bonus for work well done. It’s sheer gift. It is a stop-work order in the midst of work that’s never complete, never polished. Sabbath is not the break we’re allotted at the tail end of completing all our tasks and chores, the fulfillment of all our obligations. It’s the rest we take smack-dab in the middle of them, without apology, without guilt, and for no better reason than God told us we could.”

-Mark Buchanan
