    Genesis 2:2 " And on the seventh day God ended the work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh  day from all his work which he had made."  After God created the world, he rested! It is important for us to rest every day , but God gives us a specific day to rest and not do work, the seventh day. 

     Which day is the seventh day?  1st day- Sunday ,  2nd day- Monday,  3rd day- Tuesday,  4th day- Wednesday,  5th day- Thursday, 6th day- Friday,  7th day- Saturday! Saturday is the day given to us by God in which to rest. It is also to be a day of worship! 

        Exodus 20: 8-11 " Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger, which is in thy gates: For in six days the Lord made the heaven and earth , the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day , and hallowed it."

       Our bodies need rest. We should get about 7 to 8 hours of sleep per day, and too much sleep increases the risk of many common diseases, so don't sleep too much!
