Dog Tired

by Berni Dymet

Matt. 11:28 "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."

We live in a world where there are so many people who are working themselves into the ground.  People seem so busy….and exhausted.

Overwork?  Hmm - I'm a reforming workaholic from way back.  I don't know there seem to be so many things to do.  E-mails and meetings and plans and to-do lists.... 

I have enough on my to-do list to keep me going 24 by 7.  And I'm not alone.

But there comes a time when we have to say enough is enough. 

I'm a very early starter.  Always have been 5 am usually.  But I've decided to draw the line.  I turn my mobile off in the afternoon when my wife and daughter get home.  I don't check my e-mails at night anymore….and sometimes people just have to wait for their e-mail responses.

Jesus said come to me all you who are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.

That's a great invitation.  But we have to decide to respond.  It's up to us to make a decision to draw the line and say, enough is enough.
