A SLOWER PACE

READ
Exodus 20:8-11



Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work
-Exodus 20: 9-10

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
Psalm 135-136
1 Corinthians 12

When writer Bruce Feiler was diagnosed with bone cancer in his thigh, he couldn't walk without some help for over a year. Learning to get around on crutches caused him to appreciate a slower pace of life. Feiler said “The idea of slowing down became the number one lesson I learned from my experience”.
After God’s people were liberated from Egypt, He gave them a commandment that would cause them to slow down and view Him and the world “in pause”. The fourth commandment introduced a dramatic contrast to the Israelites’ slavery under Pharaoh when they had no break in their daily work routine.
The commandment insisted that God’s people sat aside one day a week to remember several important things: God’s work in creation (Genesis 2:2), their liberation from Egyptian bondage (Deuteronomy 5:12-15), their relationship with God (6:4-6), and their need for personal refreshment (Exodus 31:12-18). This was not to be a day of laziness, but one where God’s people acknowledged, worshipped and rested in Him.
We too are called to slow down to be refreshed physically, mentally, and emotionally, and to behold God in His good creation.-Marvin Williams
Lord, I need spiritual and physical rest. Help me to deliberately take the time to spend time with You. Please remove any obstacle that keeps me from having a more balanced rhythm to my life.

Living for God begins with resting in Him.
