Daily Read February 8, 2010

Here's a Monday thought... one that we don't talk about very much in church... the need for rest. God believed that regular (weekly) rest was important. In a day and age when we're always on the go... go, go, go, go!!!!... Especially on Monday... Let this be a reminder for you. We all NEED a day of rest once a week!!

Exodus 31:12-17 (New International Version)

12 Then the LORD said to Moses, 13 "Say to the Israelites, 'You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.

14 " 'Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. Anyone who desecrates it must be put to death; whoever does any work on that day must be cut off from his people. 15 For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day must be put to death. 16 The Israelites are to observe the Sabbath, celebrating it for the generations to come as a lasting covenant. 17 It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever, for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day he abstained from work and rested.' "
