Readings: Nehemiah, chapters 11-13
“I confronted the leaders of Judah, ‘What’s going on here? This evil! Profaning the Sabbath! Isn’t this exactly what your ancestors did? And because of it didn’t God bring down on us and this city all this misery? And here you are adding to it – accumulating more wrath on Jerusalem by profaning the Sabbath.”
- This verse reminded me of how much less emphasis our culture puts on honoring the Sabbath. I’m certainly guilty of it as well. Clearly this is not a new issue, but important nonetheless… after all it is one of the Ten Commandments!
- It’s important to God that we honor the Sabbath, therefore it should be important to us as well.
I got a lot of traffic to my site yesterday and I am feeling very blessed.
