Real rest isn’t binging Netflix or scrolling through Instagram while you lay on the couch.
I’m not telling you not to watch movies or shows during this quarantine (hello, I’ve binged Tiger King and The Morning Show so far.) I’m just worried that we’re mistaking downtime at home for Sabbath rest.
Working from the couch all day is still working. Caring for your children all day is an important job. Hammering out emails in bed at 11 PM isn’t where your soul finds rest.
Just because you’re home doesn’t mean you’re resting.
