A Month for Thanks, Day 7

Sabbath. A word we read in the Bible, a word we hear talked about by pastors, Bible teachers and spiritual directors. We don't really know what it means, how we 'keep' it.

I am still learning what this means, too. I read an excellent book about it: "The Rest of God" by Mark Buchanan. Check it out for yourself :)

I am thankful that God provided Sabbath. I am pretty sure He doesn't really need a day of rest. But, it is wonderful that He set an example for us. As I prepare to sleep at the end of this Sabbath, I feel refreshed and ready to meet the rest of my week. I have discovered this is one of the many benefits of keeping the Sabbath.
