YOUTUBE DISCUSSION

 

The Science of Power Naps

Topic:
Sabbath

Bible:
Genesis 2:2

Discussion starter:
Scientifically speaking, it turns out that your power nap in 3rd period is helping you power through the rest of your day.

Beyond the silliness, this video reminds us that our bodies need rest. (While American culture doesn’t embrace naps, many cultures around the world do! Jealous?)

Even God rested. Genesis 2:2 says, “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.” On and on throughout the Old Testament we are reminded that resting intentionally is important. Our bodies and minds were not designed to work 24/7/365. One reason you feel tired all the time or might not be as productive as you’d like is because you might not be getting the rest you need.

Of course, rest is more than about physical, mental, and spiritual relaxation. It’s mostly about faith. To intentionally rest 1/7th of the days means that you need to provide for 100% of your needs during 85% of the days in a week… which, of course, is impossible. So when you rest, intentionally, you are expressing to God that He is your provider 24/7/365/forever.

3 Questions:

  1. When do you like to nap the most? Where is your favorite napping spot?
  2. When was a time you fell asleep somewhere embarrassing?
  3. Would you rather be able to fall asleep anywhere or

Chew on this:
If God wants us to rest 1 day per week why is it so easy to skip it?
