I’m absolutely certain that God is the God of great vacations! My family and I just got the opportunity to take a great vacation, and I got to thinking about what makes a great vacation. Think about it, is a great vacation marked by how much you spend for the vacation? Is a great vacation all about the location you select to visit? What exactly makes a great vacation?
You know, I think that while location and budget are certainly factors of a great vacation, they are just a means to an end. I really believe that great vacations are made great by the results of our time spent on vacation. Great vacations should leave you refreshed, rested and re-invigorated.
vacation: a period of exemption from work
Think about it this way, have you ever needed a “vacation” from your vacation? See, even after picking a great vacation spot, sometimes vacations just don’t yield the results we’d like them to, because sometimes, even on our vacation time, the time that we’re supposed to be resting and recovering, we still find a way do so much work!
You know sometimes a good vacation isn’t just a break from work, but it’s break for our soul. Sometimes our mind and emotions need to rest as much as our bodies do. Aren’t you so glad that Jesus came to give us the rest we truly needed? He came to give us rest for our souls!
