It is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.
Matthew 12: 12
I’m celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday at the beach this weekend. After a four hour drive with gale force winds and rain pelting our windshields, we woke up to this. Breathtaking, don’t you think?
As you embrace a Sabbath from the week, may you be mindful that doing good on the day set apart for rest can also be the best kind of being in Christ. It is not a day to jump through hoops or find your identity in the list but to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the unique way He created you.
Whether comforting the sick or lying down for a nap, or pumping your feet to swings in exhales of laughter, may you find freedom in knowing he created the Sabbath because He loves you, not to wave His index finger in front of your face.
Happy Sabbath Friends!
