Do you remember when everything in town was shut down on Sunday. Now, Sunday is like any other day. Most of us might use Sunday as our catch up day. Some us might not have a choice and work in a profession that you have to work on Sunday if you want to keep your job.
In Genesis, it states that the Lord rested on the seventh day from all his work which He created and made. In Exodus, God did not give the Israelites manna on the seventh day. He gave them double the amount on the sixth day so they would not have to gather it on the Sabbath. We put such an importance on our physical rest day from exercise, but how do we prioritize our activities on the Lord’s Day?
And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the Lord: to day ye shall not find it in the field. Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none. Exodus 16:25
