Most people think the Ten Commandments are a list of rules / Do’s & Don’ts. But actually, the Ten Commandments are principles for living. Those principles enhance our relationships with God and other people.

Exodus 20:8
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy

1. There are reasons God says to rest.

A. It gives God the opportunity to provide for us supernaturally.

B. It gives us the opportunity to rest and be refreshed.

2. There are consequences when we do not rest.

We could be slowly killing ourselves by not resting one day a week.

3. There are blessings when we rest.

The Sabbath is a gift to us from God.
It is meant to refresh us emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
