I love Saturdays because they are the only “full day” that my family has to hang out together. Saturdays mean pajamas and biscuits at our house. I used to call Saturday “Pajama Day”, but, I think I’m going to change it to “Biscuit Day”.
Biscuit Day usually starts around 8:00am. Either my wife or I will get up and begin the process of cooking breakfast. First, the oven gets preheated to 450 degrees. Next, the bacon or sausage gets placed into the pan and starts to fry…I love that smell. And finally, the biscuit dough is mixed together, rolled out, and then cut into circles. The kids love to get in on the process of cutting out the biscuits, hence the above photo.
Believe it or not, Saturday is very spiritual day for me; it’s my Sabbath. In other words, I typically don’t have any obligations, other than to rest and spend time with my loved ones. On occasion, we have things we “have to do”, but for the most part we try to keep Saturday sacred. It’s our time to reflect on all that God has done for us; it’s our time to rest; it’s our time for “Sabbath”.
“Keep the Sabbath.” (Genesis 20:8-11) It’s one of the Ten Commandments that probably gets broken the most. A lot of people work 7 days a week, and if they do in fact get a day off, they typically fill it with lots of other things besides rest. However, God is serious about setting aside a day to do two things: think about Him and rest.
So, how about you? Do you have a Sabbath? Do you have a day to relax and think about all that God has done for you? If not, it’s time to “re-think” your weekly rhythm. You’ll be amazed at how much better your life will be when you practice God’s rhythm; when you practice Sabbath.
