Do Sundays Make You Exhausted?

Do you ever get to the end of a Sunday feeling shattered? If you’ve come to church in the morning, gone to someone’s house for lunch (or done the actual hosting), made it to the afternoon service, then talked to people after the service, by the time you get home, you can be exhausted, and frazzled. Rather than being replenished by Sundays, it’s easy to feel drained.

How does that square with Sunday as a day of rest? Jesus’ promised: “you will find rest for your souls” (Matt 11:29): why aren’t you getting any?! Are we doing something wrong? Why are we staring into the week ahead already feeling tired? Are we filling Sundays with too much “stuff”? Wouldn’t it be spiritually wise to cut back, and just come to church in the morning? Don’t we need to make the Lord’s day a more relaxed day?

Here’s some counsel:
