“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” Exodus 20:8-11
What does the Sabbath teach us about God?
Video here, and/or read on:
Notice first that God says we are like Him at least in this way: We work, then we rest. There’s a rhythm to life that gives life meaning, dignity, humanity. We work hard, accomplish what we can, and then we stop, recharge, celebrate our accomplishments, renew, restore.
On top of that, this isn’t for the few, for the elite. No, it’s for all of us. God makes all of us equal on this count. God wants every person, great or small, to enjoy a time of rest, and to gain a sense of dignity.
I like that.
PS. Starting Saturday 4/27/2019, in Inner Wealth, we’ll be looking at Transformational Prayer Ministry or TPM. We’ll look at what TPM is, how it helps, who it helps, where it comes from, and what you need to know if you want to receive—or provide—TPM ministry.
