—Exodus 34:21 (ESV)
While this verse is directed perhaps most appropriately to farmers, it applies to all. What does resting one day out of seven do?
- It demonstrates obedience
- It demonstrates trust.
- It demonstrates dependence.
- It demonstrates humility.
- It provides rest for the work that is to come.
- It provides presence for the family that needs more than sustenance.
- It gives the body time to recuperate.
- It provides margin for others to fit into our lives.
- It models all these things for those who watch our lives.
It is marvelous the things you find year after year simply reading your Bible through.
