When you make the Sabbath a Burden

One big problem non-Christians have with the Sabbath is the fact that Christians usually say is… “You can’t do …”  If your not careful, you can make the Sabbath a burden. The Sabbath is supposed to be a day of rest – physically, mentally, and spiritually.  You’re to enjoy the labors of the week past – socialize, reflect on God’s goodness, take a walk, spend time with friends discussing God’s goodness, recharge for the week that is coming, etc.

Just Rest

All the witnessing to people, evangelizing, bible studies, etc… that’s work for the week.  Don’t get me wrong – you can do it on Sabbath’s as well – but ask yourself – what is the week for, if not for those things?  Let’s do Sabbath’s the right way.  If we go about God’s business the way we should – Matthew 28:19-20 – the Sabbath will become what God intended it to be – a day of rest.

Remember is placed at the very first of the Fourth Commandment. Parents, you need to remember the Sabbath day yourselves to keep it holy. And if you do this, you are giving the proper instruction to your children; they will reverence God’s holy day…. Christian education is needed in your homes. All through the week keep the Lord’s holy Sabbath in view, for that day is to be devoted to the service of God. – Child Guidance

Read Exodus 20:8-10
