Six Days Shalt Thou Labor
I read in a book recently (I’m not sure what book) that God created the Sabbath to be a gift and blessing for us. This has given me a new perspective on what it means to keep the Sabbath. Do the things I do on the Sabbath show my gratitude for the gift? Do the things I do help others to be able to receive the gift of the Sabbath in their lives?
16 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 17 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; 18 But the seventh day, the sabbath of the Lord thy God, thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; 19 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is; wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
