Pastor’s Pen

August 2016

 

 Are vacations necessary? Here we are in the closing moments of summer and some haven’t taken time to plan a getaway yet others have taken several vacations.  Time and opportunity dictate how long and where we go. Getting away is important.  Jesus took time to get away. Yet he never deviated from who He was or behaved contrary to His calling.

There are many different types of vacations. Some are for visiting new places we have never been before. Some are for visiting family and friends. Some vacations are just for resting and taking time to play and enjoy our hobbies.

Jesus is our example for taking a vacation. Matthew 14:13 tell us Jesus withdrew from the crowds, his disciples and mission to pray and spend time with His heavenly father. That prepared Him for His great ministry ahead. Today we call that a retreat. 

Jesus also changed his daily routine by visiting good friends. Several times he went to visit Mary, Martha and Lazarus. Luke 10:38-42.  It is important to maintain healthy and good relationships with family and friends. A short vacation to visit loved ones can be refreshing and exhilarating. Just be careful not to overstay.

Changing things up is also important. Finding a way to interrupt the routine and pressures of life helps our well-being. It need not be elaborate. It might be just a walk in a local park or bike path.  It may be pursuing a hobby or just reading a good book.

         As Christians, we tend to let our protestant work ethic control our life in unhealthy ways. Ecclesiastes 3 teaches us to everything there is a season, and a purpose under heaven. Yes, we spend most of our time working and providing for our families but there is an important spiritual truth that reminds us it is important to take time to pour into our own life so we can be poured out for others.

         Summers tend to be way too short. Enjoy your summer.

INS,

Pastor Cal
