Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
– Genesis 2:3 (NIV)
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org
We often think of a day of rest as an option, but God set a Sabbath day into the fabric of His creation. Even though studies overwhelmingly show that we work better when we are rested, we keep short changing others and ourselves by pushing more into our schedule than we can handle. How can we make a statement that we love God? By coming out of the demands of work for a day and honoring the Sabbath.
