The need to stop every seven days is written into our DNA.
One of the 10 Commandments instructs us to observe and partake in a Sabbath day. Observing this commandment looks different depending on culture, background and upbringing. We might all define a Sabbath differently, but one thing we can agree on is the benefit and blessing that can be found in a true day of rest and rejuvenation.
A Sabbath might look like a day set aside to intentionally spend time with the Lord, and the people we love. It might look like time of celebration as we worship and give thanks to God. It might be a time to remember the goodness of God and re-establish our relationship with him.
However our Sabbath might look, it should feel like a sanctuary in our week.
