I read an article from Yahoo! Finance the other day that called Americans workaholics. The “research” was based on the amount of vacation days that people take compared to how many they are given and what they end up doing on vacation. While there is a subtle dig on employers not being required to give paid vacation, there is an interesting principle at work here. How should Christians feel about leisure? Is it OK to take a vacation?
