When you have kids weekends are the best. Baseball and birthday parties keep us busy this weekend along with responsibilities at church. Jesus’ promise of rest in Matthew 11:28-30 constantly reminds me where my strength must come from as a young naive pastor in his first call. In the midst of the hurriedness of life and the commitments of family my prayer is that I become a pastor who practices the spiritual discipline of resting in the arms of God. How do I become someone who stops and rests? How do I model for my family, my church, and the world what it means to truly rest?
