On today’s episode, we tackle the trendy topic of self-care. If self-care is just taking intentional steps to cultivate your physical, mental, and emotional health, what’s wrong with it? This topic isn’t so black and white. God created us as finite beings, and the limits that He has ordained are for our good. Rest is a gift! However, true rest according to God’s Word is not the same as what our culture promotes under the label of “self-care”. We’ll talk about what it means to have a healthy, biblical view of self-care, and we’ll even offer practical tips to engage in true rest that will refresh your soul in the Lord.
