In this podcast, Tim Keller offers his reflections on why people can’t rest .. highlighting the difference between physical rest and deep soul rest and where that comes from. 

"In today’s passage from Luke 6, we learn about Sabbath rest. God gives us rest from our labors – it is a gift and a blessing. It is a way of keeping us healthy and protecting us from being overwhelmed by our work. God himself modeled it for us when creating the universe. Let’s look at it more closely: Why do we need it? Where do we get it? How do we do it?"
