Tuesday June 6th: Keeping the Sabbath

Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s; remember to keep holy the Sabbath

Mark 12: 13-17

How do we keep the Sabbath Holy?

Resting in the Lord is as equally as important as toiling. If we must follow in Jesus’ footsteps by being obedient to the Father’s Will, then we must obey the Third Commandment.

Do we arrange our work and lives to ensure we dedicate our Sundays to rest and rejuvenation in the Lord, or do we see Sunday as another day to attend to all the projects we were unable to do during the week?

This does not refer to those who are duty bound to serve in his/her profession.

Beyond mere obligation, God desires our union with Him because we are His beloved.

O how much improved our lives, families and society will be, if we but set aside Sundays for Our Lord.

On the seventh day God rested.
