“Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest; in plowing time and in harvest you shall rest. Exodus 34:21 New King James Version
Jehovahs commands are for our own good.
I know that when I was a child living on a farm there were farmers that rested on the Sabbath and there were those that did not. Funny thing is that both pretty much ended their panting season at the same time. It was the same at harvest time. The difference was that those who worked seven days a week were exhausted by the time the planting or harvest season was over.
I know people that worked seven days a week just to make more money.
Does not the government get most of it in taxes anyway?
So how far ahead are you?
Not only that but their health deteriorated and they had to take medication which eventually destroyed their lives. Now, most of them are broke and many homeless.
Most of it centered around wanting to constantly but new toys like ski doos or sea doos.
Where are their toys now?
Was it worth it?
What good did all that work do them?
I also know many that did rest on the Sabbath ad although not filthy rich are living a healthy comfortable life in their retirement.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Shalom (God of Peace) for blessing us with a day set aside to worship You and to find peace and rest from the hectic and stressful week. I praise You in the name of the Prince of Peace Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
