Focus passage: Then he said to them, “The Human One is Lord of the Sabbath.” Luke 6:5
If the prospect of taking time each week for Sabbath seems daunting and makes you a little anxious wondering how you will be able to accomplish it, then you need a Sabbath break. In Proverbs we read “A little sleep … a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty [another word for death] will come upon you like a robber.” (Proverbs 6:10-11) Sabbath rest is a sign of faithfulness. It is elemental to our relationship with God.
Prayer: God of Sabbath rest, help me to find time to faithfully rest and trust that you can provide for me. Amen.
