- Discuss this thought: As important as work is for a good life; there is more to life than labor.
- When you hear the words “Fit Stop,” what thoughts come to your mind?

- The FIT STOP is written into the very fabric of creation. During the first six
In days of creation, God moved from the essential elements to the more complex. For example, he filled the earth with animals on the fifth and sixth days. And then, the last thing He did on that sixth day was to create man and woman by breathing the breath of life into them. What did God do on the seventh day? (Genesis 2:2-3) Why did He do this? Did He need the rest from all the strenuous labor? Was He personally fatigued? Or, what was it He was trying to teach us?
Exodus 16:22-30 gives us a living illustration of this principle. God supplied
Manna every day for the church of Israel when they were out in the desert. What happened on the sixth day, and what were they instructed to do? In Exodus 27:16, what happened? What is the lesson for us to learn from this?
