I continued my study of Sabbath Keeping this week. Amazing and thought provoking!
The most incredible description of sabbath in chapter 3 was where the author said, "Sabbath is a deep symbol of Israel's intimate relationship with God. Violating sabbath is like throwing your wedding ring in the face of your spouse." That is a powerful example of the fact the Sabbath is not another task to be checked off our list, but instead it is about our relationship with God. The sabbath day is dedicated time to further develop our relationship with God.
The Sabbath sounds more and more like something I really must begin to practice in a much more dedicated way than I have previously!
