Read Matthew 11: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%2011&version=NIV
Scripture: v 11:29 ‘Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. ‘
Observation: Sabbath with the Lord is not simply a vacation. Sabbath includes communing with the Lord to renew our souls and grow in grace.
Application: I want to include scripture reading and prayer, even on the days when I am on vacation or away.
Prayer: Lord, help us to see our communion with you through prayer, worship, and study as a renewing part of our life, instead of as a duty or obligation. May our souls find rest in you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
