A friend recently shared with me that his pastor requires all full time staff to break the work day into three segments: 1) morning; 2) afternoon; 3) evening. Each full time staff person can only work two segments in one day. The other segment must be given to family and/or personal time.
So often, leaders work long morning hours, long afternoon hours, then much of the evening. They will eventually burn out if there is not time to rest and recharge.
If you are responsible for full time staff members, give them the freedom to only work two segments per day. Also, for those who are workaholics, hold them accountable to take time off.
Matthew 11:28 says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Read Matthew 11:28-30.
Rest in Jesus.
