Japan : Death By Working
Workaholic Japan has unveiled its first-ever plan to limit overtime, but critics want to give it the boot, saying an “outrageous” 100-hour-a-month cap will do nothing to tackle karoshi, or death from overwork.

Oh, the joy of God giving one rest from work as the person follows Jesus.
There may be a cross, there may be denying self and there may be hard opposition but God grants rest to those who follow His Son.
…for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. (Hebrews 4:10)
Unfortunately few have experienced this rest in God. Want rest for your soul? Then you take upon yourself the yoke of Jesus and learn from Him. There is great joy for those who obey even when suffering.
- Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29)
Even when there is hard work, sleepless nights, there is rest for the soul given by the power of God. Indeed, there was much rest and joy every Sunday at the church I used to pastor because God was there providing it as we obeyed Him.
- In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat- for he grants sleep to those he loves. (Psalm 127:2)
