About the piteous fading of the mind, someone has said, ‘It is sometimes the Father’s way to put His child to bed in the dark’; but the child will waken very happy in the morning. … However shadowed the ‘going to bed’ of the Father’s child may be, the awakening will be radiant.

It’s easy to find people who think work is good and leisure is bad (i.e., you rest to work). Also people who think leisure is good and work is bad (i.e., you work to rest). But according to the Bible, both work and rest can be good if they are done to the glory of God. Both have their place. The hard part is putting them in the right places.
