Sabbath rest

Monday March 9th, Exodus 20: 8 Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Work six days and do everything you need to do. 10 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to GOD your God. Don't do any work--not you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your servant, nor your maid, nor your animals, not even the foreign guest visiting in your town. 11 For in six days GOD made Heaven, Earth, and sea, and everything in them; he rested on the seventh day. Therefore GOD blessed the Sabbath day; he set it apart as a holy day. The Sabbath was made for humanity, not humanity for the Sabbath. When we don’t take time to rest and reflect on God’s love in our lives, life just seems to start losing meaning and beauty. It is not about embracing sloth one day a week, it is about dedicating your time to spiritual refreshment in life at least one day a week.  Spend it in the yard, spend it on your family, you can even spend it going fishing or snowmobiling, but never forget to spend it with God, with worship.  You won’t go to hell for ignoring Sabbath worship, but you will make your life, slowly, one week at a time, a living hell as all those relaxing activities simply become hollow and just more work. This is another one of those laws that is really grace in disguise.
