Every Day is a Sabbath Day: Working and resting effectively

Updated on May 25, 2011

Keep every day Holy

Deuteronomy 5:12-14 reads, "Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee. Six days thou shalt labor, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, tho, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor the stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou." (this is a King James rendition of Hebrew Bible scripture).

One notes that some Christians worship and keep the Sabbath Day on Sunday, other Christians keep the Sabbath Day on Saturday, that coincides more closely with Jews and Muslims ideas of Sabbath (from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday). At a world-class seminary where I was able to study under a Jewish Rabbi for a time (actually, I took on course from him) I learn a some things about the Sabbath, thought I admit, I am not Sabbath scholar, by any means. What I learned, however, was the value of a day of rest, and the value of keeping days, all days, as holy as I was able to keep them. One may ask, "What does it means to keep a day holy?" I am not willing to go into a subject as extensive as this one in the present Hub that I am writing.

The point that I am trying to make is that it not good that one can take a Sabbath Day, remember it, to keep it holy, and then for the next six days (until the next Sabbath Day), behave in the worse manner, not regarding the six days excluding the Sabbath Day with any care or value, other than just a day to do work. What I am asking is for us to remember all seven of the days of the week, keeping them as holy as we can keep them, because all of them are "days that the Lord has made."

So, as we go, lets enjoy life, lets enjoy the days, and lets make the best of them. This is the least that we can do to show our appreciation to God for all the days, the weeks, and the years.

Everyday: A Sabbath Day
