JOHN WESLEY, founder of the Methodist movement, was known for his energy and activism. He traveled many miles on horseback and on foot to preach and guide the ministry. Sometimes theologians and historians lift him up as a kind of “energizer bunny” who never slowed down. Yet Wesley knew the value of rest and sometimes referred to sleep as a sacrament.
Take time today to rest, maybe even nap.
