Daily devotional: Sabbath rest

Scripture
Then Jesus said to them, "The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath.
Mark 2:27 NLT

Observation
God's intent behind the Sabbath is to step away from normal routines and work to be refreshed spiritually, physically, and mentally. It is not about legalism, but Jesus didn't abolish the Sabbath either.

Application
Realign my life to respect and enjoy Sabbath rest.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for desiring our best. Even though You've shown me this before, thank you for showing me again since I needed to see this. Please be especially with Uncle Bill, the Clarks, and everyone in Haiti. May your name be made great! I love you!
