Doing Nothing is Spiritual

Written by Allan Castro from College of Biblical Studies

Sit back… clear your head… breathe…. and do nothing. In today’s age that’s an impossible task. The stress of yesterday and today overflows into the future. Accomplishing tasks gives us time to accomplish more tasks!

The unfortunate truth is that it’s hard to do nothing. As in shutting off your brain, not worrying about anything, or being concerned with any sort of productivity. Laying on the couch, staring off into la la land, or sitting on the porch— this is all part of the sweet science of doing nothing! 

Would you depict Christ as a driven go-getter and task-minded zealot? Or a simple, loving, nap-taking Rabbi who would wake early mornings to hike in the mountains, or go on a stroll through a farm on a Sunday. 

If Christ knew to rest and reflect, then he knew to do nothing. No agenda, no concern, no time limit— absolutely nothing.

The present and future will forever be filled with tasks and worries, but in heaven, there’s nothing to get done. It was and it remains finished on the cross. Nothing to worry about, nothing to accomplish… Do nothing.

If slowing down and taking time to relax is something you struggle with as much as we do, here’s a Scripture and prayer to encourage you to do nothing.

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34).

A Prayer for Doing Nothing

Lord, you made the universe in a week and on the 7th day, you did nothing. Teach me to do nothing……. Amen.
