Psalms 117-119; Hebrews 4

Hebrews 4:9-11 Therefore, a sabbath rest still remains for the people of God. And whoever enters into God’s rest, rests from his own works as God did from his. Therefore, let us strive to enter into that rest, so that no one may fall after the same example of disobedience.

“God made the Sabbath for man, not man for the Sabbath” so says Jesus to the Pharisees.  How much a happier society we would be if everyone took a break on Sunday (apologies Seventh-Day Adventists), went to church, and refrained from mercantile pursuits.  Of course some have to work: nurses, first responders, police, NFL players (“Are you not entertained?!”).  I am always amused by articles about Chick Fil-A, which inevitable quote some Wall Street wonk who bemoans how much money the company leaves on the table by not being open on Sunday.  The other six days those restaurants are cash machines, staffed by hustling, smiling, agreeable people who seem to be enjoying what they are doing.  I believe that organization is reaping the blessings of the Sabbath rest, regardless of what one’s spreadsheet might say – call me crazy….but just call me.
