Sabbath for Man. Not Man for Sabbath.

2nd week into the 2014 Lenten journey and I already blew my Sabbath commitment!  There are just too many crises – even with other folks helping out.  Jail, hospital, Greyhound busses, shut-ins, house guests, broken cars, etc.

And He said to them, “What man shall there be among you, who shall have one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it, and lift it out? “Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep! So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.” (Mat 12:11-12 NAS77)

My sheep are stuck in the house, homeless, in jail or the hospital, but I think those qualify as a pit, too.

And He was saying to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.
(Mar 2:27 NAS77)

    Jim, I was wondering how you would be able to have your Sabbath today with all that is going on. Welcome to my life. I’m glad to see your struggle and sacrifice for others. It encourages my walk. I’m still dreaming of a Sabbath day totally committed to God.
    I believe God can make the difference through all things.
    God bless,
    Ed
