The biblical view of work and rest is almost like the relationship between sound and silence in music. If all you have is sound, it isn’t called music, it is called noise. It irritates rather than blesses. If all you have is silence, then there is nothing there at all. It takes the combination of sound and silence to produce music. Work similarly needs to be punctuated with rest or else it becomes mere activity and then a burden and an irritant to all involved.
