After the year that was 2020, we all need rest. Rest is a good thing; it heals, it restores, it renews. God values rest: the Bible reveals how important it is. Like the good Father he is, God wants us to enjoy rest, and even instructs us to rest. But how good are we at actually resting? And resting in the way God deems best? In this seven-day series, we will circle around three verses from the gospel of Matthew, as well as other parts of Scripture, to see how we can learn to take a real rest.
