Got a Sabbath?

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Becca worked from home, and her friends envied her. “No commute!” they’d say. And while no commute was great, Becca knew the flip side: no climbing in the car to get away from work. Work was always with her.

Becca’s big temptation was evenings: office time without the business phone ringing. And her nightly labors often cost her time with her family—to just enjoy being with them.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. In God’s infinite wisdom, He provides the antidote to overwork. It’s called the Sabbath—the balance between rest and work. The Sabbath is our chance to resist our workaholic tendencies and to accept God’s part of the high calling of our daily work.
