The Sabbath Belongs to the Lord

Meditation (Leviticus 23:1-3) The Lord gave Moses the following regulations for the religious festivals, when the people of Israel are to gather for worship.  You have six days in which to do your work, but remember that the seventh day, the Sabbath, is a day of rest.  On that day we do not work, but gather for worship.  The Sabbath belongs to the  Lord, no matter where you live.

Personal Reflection and Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, Thank You for giving regulations for a day of rest and worship.  You have given us six days in which to work but we have not always  remembered  the Sabbath.  Help us, Lord to get back to You, to follow Your commandments and to remember that the Sabbath belongs to You.  Amen.
