Not that many years ago, the Sabbath represented a different perspective. Stores closed because nearly everyone went to church. Only the people involved in healthcare services or law enforcement worked. Everything else stopped.
But today, we live in a different culture with a busyness worldview. Sunday is often the most productive time for retail. Many of us are just as busy on Sundays as other days of the week.
So how can we honor the Sabbath and thus honor God’s command recorded in Exodus 20:8-11? Is it only a day for relaxation or can we somehow find a new way to honor God on the Sabbath?
