Do you have trouble resting from your work because you are worried about having enough? How does this passage encourage you?
Reference on Rest: “Rest is a restorative break from labor and worldly striving. In the Bible it is an essential feature of the Sabbath—a day of rest on which no work was to be done. As a time of peace and calm, free from work, rest comes to symbolize salvation itself.” Lexham Theological Wordbook
