How do you rest?

May 23, 2006

CJ, Lig and I had the honor to have dinner with RC & Vesta Sproul and John Piper.  It was the first night of the Together for the Gospel conference.  And we were being hosted very graciously by Al & Mary Mohler. 

At one point the conversation turned to our busy schedules.  One person exhorted another about the importance of rest.  It was then that John Piper quietly commented "I find productivity restful for my soul." 

"Restful for my soul." 

"Productivity." 

Bodily rest is important.  Rest for the soul is even more important.
