Modern life is so busy. We all have many commitments that we rarely take time for drawing close to God and one another. Yet we are commanded in Exodus to keep holy the Sabbath. Why?
Physically our bodies need rest. Our finite bodies can only go for a very limited time without food and rest. However that is only a small part of the reason we need to keep holy the Sabbath. It is intended for us to spend time with The Lord and loved ones so as to deepen our relationships and renew us in mind, body and soul.
Get up early and enjoy a sunrise breakfast with The Lord and your loved ones. Katica and I did so recently and it is a memory I will treasure for years to come.
