The Fifth Commandment

Exodus 20:8 says: "Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy."

The fifth commandment.

I break it all the time.

Like I said a couple weeks ago, I struggle with "rest".

Got into a good discussion with a friend at church today about the sabbath.  She maintained that taking a sabbath is not only good for you, but neccessary.  It's important to have one day each week where you DO NOT WORK. 

You don't have to sit around and do nothing.

You don't have to sit and pray for 24 hrs straight.

You just need to relax.

So tonight we opened the phones to you.  Do you observe the sabbath?  Overall, most of us don't, but we think we should.  So why not?  Why not take one day this week, and try it out?  Take it for a test drive.

Try it, and we'll talk again in one week.
