After telling us about the fast that pleases God, the prophet Isaiah tells us that God wants us to honor His Sabbath each week. Sabbath is a day of worship, a day for rest, a day for family and feasting. The sun sets, the Sabbath candles are lit, the family gathers for dinner. The sun rises and the family joins other families to worship and rest on the Sabbath day. God says we will find joy and honor if we will do this.
Isn’t that cool, there is a time for fasting, but God calls us weekly to feast and worship with our families and others. Relationships really do matter to Him and us!
Peace and Joy!
