How could we forget this

In the ancient world, leisure was reserved for the wealthy, so there was no such thing as a day of rest for workers. By remembering and observing the Sabbath, the Jews celebrated their freedom from slavery. By resting, we give God honour as creator of the universe.

Here’s the challenging thought…… If God rested from his work on the 7th day, why do we see our work and labours as more important than his? In all our consumerism we have forgotten that observing the Sabbath isn’t just a good idea, but a commandment from God. I know what know what you’re thinking, because I’m thinking it too….. Ouch! How could we have forgotten about this and ignored this sacred command?

Observing the Sabbath and resting will train our hearts to focus on our God as creator and if we do that then no challenge we could possibly be facing could ever be too big for God to resolve. It helps us gain divine perspective.

This word is as much a challenge to me as it may be to you, but I would like to encourage us all to receive God’s word of correction with joy and humility and set your mind to change some bad habits that are keeping us honouring God the way we should on the Sabbath.
