  1. Abi — you got me thinking about this in a whole different way. I guess I’ve always thought of the Sabbath as a day we should be wholly devoted to God (not that I ever really did that — not like the days of old where you could do nothing but sit quietly and pray).

    But you are right — God created this day for our rest and refreshment. Which means, of course, we need to refresh our spirit AND our body. But it is not a day of legalism, like the Pharisee’s proclaimed.

    I want Sunday’s to be a day for family, church, and general enjoyment of this world. He meant it as a break from our work so we’d be better prepared for the upcoming week. Thanks for the change in perspective! As long as I am relaxing my body and engaging my spirit, I won’t feel guilty about what we do on Sabbaths.
