The Importance of Self-Care (and why it's Biblical)

As Christian women, we’re often well acquainted with the idea of self-sacrifice.  Our calling is to be like Jesus.  He literally laid his life down for his friends.  We want to serve God by serving others.  This is good- and it’s as it should be.  Love God and love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:30-31)


So is it wrong to focus on self-care?  Is it biblical? 

Taking time to retreat and focus on your own body, mind, and spirit is a practice that is modeled by Jesus and demonstrated throughout the Bible.
