Today, we are tackling a question that has so much relevance today – both from a health perspective, but also from a spiritual perspective. Self-Care – is it biblical, or not? Sometimes, self-care can seem selfish, if not impossible in the busy schedules we maintain.

But what is the effect of that busy lifestyle? We can emphasize what we do for God rather than who we are to him. Often our doing trumps our being. And the result can sometimes be burnout, and then guilt for needing a break.

Admitting that we have needs is NOT a failure. Our need for rest is not only necessary for each of us, but biblical.

In this episode, we discuss:

- The benefits of self-care
- Why self-care is sometimes looked down on (understandably so!)
- How Jesus modeled self-care throughout his earthly ministry
- How to start practicing self-care
- The 4 areas of self-care (Physical/Emotional/Psychological/Spiritual)
- Pete Scazzero’s 4 elements of Sabbath-keeping (stop/rest/delight/contemplate)
