A Resource From Youth Ministry Resources
As teachers of adult bible study curriculum we are not immune to the command to take a Sabbath day of rest. We need this to refresh and refocus. Because if we get too tired and run down then we lose focus and power in our teaching and we are not as effective in our spiritual walk with God. We are designed this way. It is okay to stop every once in awhile. Granted some people rest too much but this does not mean that we should put an extra day in to make up for it. I am sure that you have a lot going on on top of taking on leading your small group. But if you will follow this principle and plan your time well, you will find times for rest and be much better off. If you check out our training center you will see we have a video about this. There is a study plan that if you follow you can actually have an entire day, maybe two to purely rest. So do not over do it and end up burning yourself out. Take time for rest so that you can stay in this for the long haul.
