SHARING MY HEART AND PASSION
FOR CREATIVITY, FINE ART AND THE BIBLE
Hello Dear Ones,
I pray you are well and enjoying these short snippets on the Ten Commandments. Needless to say, there are many different views on what they mean, and I hope my short writings spur you on to study the Ten Commandments to have a fuller understanding.
We’re at the fourth commandment, which is found in Exodus 20:8–11
“8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.”
According to Jewish custom, the Sabbath is a Saturday. It’s considered a holy day and a day for rest and no work, as an act of worship and honor to the Lord.
The Christian faith believes that the day of the Lord is the first day of the week, which is on a Sunday. Most Christians worship on Sundays.
In the beginning, God rested on the seventh day after His creation work, and He commands us to also work six days and rest one day of the week.
Whatever you believe, the most important thing is to honor the Lord every day, but take one day a week to rest and give God special worship and honor.
