Tuesday, Jan 15, 2019. Some rules are good, they are there to protect, they are there to help. We all know thousands of rules in our everyday life, and most of them serve their particular purpose. Most of them have been created to do good things.
The same is true with the Old Testament rules given for the people of God, the people of Israel. The Sabbath rule is one of these. You may work for six days, but the seventh day is for rest. Do not work that day, and do not let your servants work, or even your animals. All have a right to get some rest, to get out of a never ending work process.
