Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns, so that your male and female servants may rest, as you do. Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the Lord your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the Lord your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.

– Deuteronomy 5:13-15 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

We find the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5. The Exodus account speaks of the Sabbath in terms of creation: God rested. The Deuteronomy account speaks of the Sabbath in terms of freedom: only free people are able to rest. Are you able to rest and worship? It is the slave that is driven to exhaustion, not the free person. So remember this Sunday that God has set you free and don’t enslave yourself to your ambitions or desires. Observe the Sabbath and rest.
