February 12 – Scripture of the Day

Script-Day-02-12_0448

The scripture that stood out to me today was Exodus 35:2 which is simply another command to obey the Sabbath day. It reads: “You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day must be a Sabbath day of complete rest, a holy day dedicated to the Lord. Anyone who works on that day must be put to death.”

The repeated mention of the Sabbath is a good reminder for me that we need to be intentional about our rest.  In our culture and society, it is all to easy to get caught up doing a thousand things, leaving us feeling rushed, hectic, tired and overwhelmed.

That is one of the reasons one of my goals for 2015 is to DO LESS.

Having margin in our lives is something I am going to write about more coming up, but for now the simple reminder that we need to have a Sabbath day is good. Not only do we need one, but God COMMANDS us to observe it.
