One of the things we forget in our Western obsession to create the ‘perfect’ Christmas for our families is that God is kind. He is not the slave-driver we sometimes make Him out to be, and He is certainly not the one demanding spotlessly clean houses, gourmet-cooked meals four times a day for a whole week, hours of entertainment for all the family and argument-free households! Sometimes, we need to press the ‘pause’ button and relax.

God made the Sabbath for us as a reminder that there’s more to life than work. We need rest, recuperation and time to be with Him. God knows who we are; He knows how we are made. (Ps 103:14-18) As we approach the Christmas holidays, let’s remember that God is kind and rest in that kindness.
