MONDAY: Matthew 6:25-34
Do you ever feel spent? Do you ever worry about life? What does Jesus say about feeling spent?
TUESDAY: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
What does the Bible teach us about time? How are you spending your time? Do you see time as a gift from God?

Where do you see yourself in this story? Do you most identify with Mary? Martha? What would it look like for you to spend more time at the feet of Jesus?
THURSDAY: Luke 12:13-21
We have limits, and one of those limits is time. What does God say about the limit of time in this story? How did the rich farmer spend his time? How are you spending your time?
FRIDAY: Exodus 20:8-11
This is a list of what we call the 10 Commandments. What “commandment” is described in these verses? Why is it important? What is Sabbath?
SATURDAY: Isaiah 58:1-14
God is pretty serious about the practice of Sabbath. How does Sabbath affect God’s view of God’s people? Why does Sabbath matter?
SUNDAY: Matthew 12:1-14
Sometimes Sabbath practices can be one more thing that we add to our “to do” list. How does Jesus redefine Sabbath? Is the practice of Sabbath still important in our lives? How do you practice Sabbath (rest, relationship and relaxation)?
