Read: Genesis 2:3
Creation was not simply God’s way of getting things going, it was also God’s way to get things going properly. The rhythm of working and resting is part of the creation story.
Probably the most amazing part of this story is in the two words, “God rested.” If God is “all” everything (present, powerful, and knowing), why would God need to rest?
We’ll probably never find out the complete answer to that question, but at the very least it raises this question, “Do I think I do not need to do something that God needed to do?”
One of the glories of creation is that God put into it the opportunity for us to do on earth what, apparently, He does in heaven. Why would anyone want to miss out on that?
