May you have a peaceful and restful Sabbath, dear friends.
So Bnei-Yisrael is to keep the Shabbat,
to observe the Shabbat throughout their generations
as a perpetual covenant.
It is a sign between Me and Bnei-Yisrael forever,
for in six days Adonai made heaven and earth,
and on the seventh day He ceased from work and rested.’”Exodus 31:16-17
The Ten Commandments are favored even by postChristian society. They are considered the Tanakh commands that remain “relevant.” Nevermind the 603 other commandments that just so happen to reveal the heart of the Father…. It would be good to at least begin with the 10 that are well-known. Perhaps if we can learn to obey these, we will be on our way to obeying the others. Do we obey out of obligation? No. We obey because we love YHVH.
Why not begin with such a special command? The command to take time on the 7th day of the week to spend time with your Creator.
