Sabbath Rest

After 11 years of taking Friday off I’ve switched my day off to Monday.  It feels strange to say the very least.  Sabbath is very important.  I think most people fail to recognize how important it is.  Sure they say, “I need a day off.” or they say “Thank goodness it’s Friday (unless they decide to break another commandment)”; but I think even then they are trivializing the serious need for unscheduled time.  

When it comes to Sabbath I’m a recreationalist; that is I believe it is a day for recreation, as rest too.  I worship God on Sunday just like everyone else except my seat is in the front but on my day “off”.  I do something entirely different, I work around the yard, spend time with my wife, or if time permits I go fishing.  Which I did this week.  

The day was gorgeous, the company was good, and the fish were somewhat agreeable.  I am refreshed and that is the idea for as scripture says the Sabbath was made for man not man for the Sabbath.  

So sisters and brothers – are you taking your Sabbath?  It is on God’s top ten list – you might want to rethink your response.Image
