For most people, Sunday is considered the Sabbath. Even for those who aren’t churchgoers, Sunday seems to be the day where everyone rests.
As someone who works in the church, it’s difficult for me to take the entire day as my Sabbath. I have a different day off in the week, where I try to rest, but even that is challenging.
So on Sundays, I take my Sabbath rest in moments…
- The morning run before sunrise where I am listening to God’s Word in song.
- Hearing young voices in the responsive prayer as we are united in thanksgiving to God in worship.
- Putting on my pj’s and vegging out in front of the TV watching my favorite football team, once I’ve returned from church.
I don’t honor it enough, but it is in the third commandment: “Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy.” It’s time to rest.
