About the Sabbath
The Sabbath is a command from God: Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. (Exodus 20:8)
Work was designed to be a blessing, to be done purposefully, and to be done in rhythm. We see these laws in action everywhere, from the natural to the mechanical. Land needs rest from continual farming, and even machines require routine downtime and maintenance. As human beings, our physical, mental and spiritual selves also need rest from our otherwise incessant need for work and productivity.
