Sabbath Day

Exodus 20:8-11  Remember to keep Holy the Sabbath Day.  Six days you may labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord, your God.  No work may be done then, either by you, or your son or daughter, or your male or female slave, or your beast, or by the alien who lives with you. In the six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them; but on the seventh day He rested.  That is why the Lord has blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.  (The New American Bible)

This is the 4th commandment.

This should be an easy commandment to follow, but it isn't.  Just take a look around in our society, our neighborhoods and homes.   Or take a look at the malls.  Sunday is one of the busiest shopping days while we do our errands or go for pleasure. 

Is this considered work?  I think so.

Is this considered keeping the Sabbath Day holy?  I think not.

I am guity of this sin and have made resolution to refocus my habits so I CAN follow this commandment and keep my Sabbath Days Holy.

Family and Friends, please keep me accountable!
