Publisher's Summary

Rest your mind, body, and spirit and focus on God's principles for keeping the Sabbath with this helpful guide from best-selling author Robert Morris.

A constant stream of busyness can slowly wear away at us over time: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Yet believers often forget that taking a day of rest is one of the Ten Commandments! When we don't give our minds and emotions a break, our will to make good choices can often become compromised. Resting is also important to those around you. If you have a weary soul, you can't pour yourself into others at home, work, or wherever you are. It's vital-you must take the day off.

In Take the Day Off, Pastor Morris explains why rest is central to your well-being, how to do it, and how helpful it can be. You will be inspired to experience true rest and make it a priority in the rhythm of your weekly schedule. Don't wait and delay God's blessings in your life. Start implementing the principle of rest in your life and you will see eternal benefits.

The narrator puts me to sleep

I've tried to listen to this book as well as The Blessed Life second addition and I just can't make it through the forward because of the narrator. I love Pastor Robert's preaching, teaching, and story telling. I wish he had enough time to narrate his own books. I would listen to them multiple times like a listen to his messages multiple times via podcast. Just a poor choice for a narrator.

Essential Truth

For anyone who wishes they could step off the treadmill we call our working lives, this book taken to heart and put into practice will be a life changer. Anticipating poor reviews by those who I have read on previous occasions claiming a book is “too Christian” or that they heard “too many verses,” I will say that it is impossible to benefit from the truths in this book without an openness to the God of the Bible and His plan for us to rest once a week.
I was refreshed to hear the author address the difference between time with God and time at church. The precepts in this book are especially insightful for those of us who are “worn out by religion” and wondering why we are so exhausted in the course of what we believe is”doing good.”
I enjoyed the many examples expressed in this book to make the concept of faithfully incorporating rest into our week a practical activity, and in telling the stories of others who have done it and been greatly blessed by God for doing so.
Reading how others’ lives were changed is always a compelling argument and this author makes good use of those types of stories.
This is not a “how-to” book, however. Putting the truths expressed here into practice will look different for each person, and is not confining, but freeing.
I just finished my first time through the book and I am already dealing with my uneasiness at unplugging once a week, and finding that my “4 tanks” (physical, emotional, mental, and Spiritual) have been empty or nearly empty for some time. I look forward to learning how to live from full “tanks” and reaping the benefits of just believing that God’s plan is not only the best for me, but also that which creates the most joy in this life.
