Sunday | Mark 2;23-28

a moment of rest

Finding time to rest is so important. We all know it, but sometimes it’s so hard to give ourselves permission to sit down and breathe for more than a few moments. That’s why God invented the sabbath (Sunday), I think. Not especially for us to go to church and sit down with our congregations for an hour (although that is a good use of a Sunday as well) – but most of all because we need time to rest, to regroup, to recover from a week of hard work before we throw ourselves out into another week of much to-do.

I grew up with a lot of rules around this special day of the week, some of them were good (those I’ve kept) – others were not and tended to turn away from the main thing: finding rest in our selves and in our life + having time for God and our faith.

I love to think about how much God knows about us humans, much more than we know ourselves. I love to think how much God wants us to take care of us in the middle of it all; so we can be the best us that is and take on our everyday life with new-found energy from a slow day of rest and rekindling our faith in both God and us selves.

And Jesus concluded, “The Sabbath was made for the good of human beings; they were not made for the Sabbath.

Blessings for the week ahead.
