With our lives already so full of commitments and the extra work that the COVID protocols require for us to be at school or work, the idea of setting aside time to rest seems impossible.
For some of us the memory of Sundays is not a pleasant one. Perhaps you are like me. I grew up in a time when Sundays were all about "dos" and "don'ts". Church twice on Sundays was a given. I would come home and only certain types of playing were allowed. Certainly no biking, swimming, or card playing.
However, Jesus said in Mark 2:27 "Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath".
In his blog post "Sabbath: The Gift of Restoration and Realignment", Chris Schoon, director of Faith Formation Ministry (CRCNA) says "In resting, we begin to believe and remember our real worth is found in God's love and care for us". You can read the rest of his blog post HERE.
“Sabbath isn't about resting perfectly; it's about resting in the One who is perfect.”
