For some, annual holidays provide the opportunity to turn off from their usual occupation and immerse themselves in other activities. So much so, that sometimes they even look forward to going back to work for a rest.
We should try and be sensible about holidays and consider our body’s need for rest and recuperation.
For many, holidays may well involve a complete change in lifestyle, such as camping or touring. Others may use the time to reconnect with friends and relatives or even travel the world.
Whatever our choice, holidays can be a good opportunity to consider some of those things we have not been able to give much time to during our busy year.
We can’t keep locking God out of our lives on the pretext that we are too busy. Our holidays can give us the opportunity of questioning where we are going and what we are doing, not just in this life, but in the next.
Making our God more real in our world will allow us to face the future with a new-found hope and a long-term friend.
I’m Peter Mack and that’s faith.
