"Jesus’ words in Mark 2:27 reveal to us a true gift from God...the Sabbath. Yet, if there is a gift from God that many of us choose to reject it is the Sabbath. “Stop work and rest” that’s impractical. “One day off from work” I cannot afford to take time off. Our culture does not honor a break from our productive lives. Yet, the Sabbath is a gift from God that we need to receive. It is a gift that makes space for us to hear from God, enjoy God, receive the good things God wants to give us, and allows us to love our neighbor."
