Podcast - The Task Master Drowned
Why do we see the Ten Commandments as nine commandments and one suggestion?
In Deuteronomy, it says to observe a Sabbath because Israel is not enslaved by Egypt anymore. A Sabbath was a reminder that you are not a commodity, you are not valuable because of what you can produce, you are free! You are a human being!
Might be time to stop thinking of a Sabbath as a suggestion. Sabbath is God reminding us we're not enslaved to work. We are more than what we can produce; we are children of God.
