Vacations that make space for God

Dave and Reb talk with Ray Borg from Compass Canada about how to experience a vacation as a time set apart, not only with family, but with the Lord.

In the days of the Old Testament, the Lord commanded Israel to set aside a portion of their provision so they could gather with their communities at the place God chose as His holy dwelling. The purpose was worship and thanksgiving. In Deuteronomy 14:26, God says “use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink, or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice.”

While we may not think of our “vacations” as holy days, maybe a better word for our times of rest and travel should be “holidays” says Dave van Noppen, financial coach and show host. “We need to seriously consider the value of taking time set apart with and for God, not just for ourselves.”

Whether you stay home and take time from work, or whether you travel abroad, your goals can be the same. Take time during this “away” time to focus on God, celebrating, worshipping, feasting, giving gratitude, praying and singing. Dave and Reb assure you, that you will come home more refreshed and filled with strength.
