You’ve heard of the Ten Commandments, right? Don’t have other gods before me. Don’t make idols. Don’t use the Lord’s name in vain. Honor your mom and dad. Don’t murder, commit adultery, steal, lie, or covet. Why do we ignore number four—keeping the Sabbath? Pastor Dave DeSelm wonders too. God rested, and so did Jesus. Why don’t WE? As parents we may be SO driven that we NEVER rest. Hey, guys—it wasn’t a suggestion. Dave says Sabbath allows us to rest our body, restore our soul, remember our identity, and recalibrate our values. It doesn’t have to be Sunday, but do make it a consistent day each week for you AND your family. Sabbath is supposed to be a delight, not a duty.
