Junk Rest (Isaiah 55:1-2)



Why are we always so tired? Why do our efforts at rest yield so little? What if my circumstances are fixed? How do I find rest, then? Hear God's invitation to real, nourishing, long-lasting rest.


Come, everyone who thirsts,
        come to the waters;
     and he who has no money,
        come, buy and eat!
     Come, buy wine and milk
        without money and without price. 
    Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,
        and your labor for that which does not satisfy?
     Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,
        and delight yourselves in rich food. (Isaiah 55:1–2)
