When was the last time you took a day off? A weekend? A day without work? A holiday? A day relaxing with family and friends, away from work, away from the demands of work, a day without thinking about work? A day without producing anything and not feeling guilty about it?
When was the last time you had a Sabbath? That’s what we’re talking about, a sabbath. A seventh day of rest. It used to be honored in Western culture, before we discovered the wonders of seven day shopping. It`s part of the Ten Commandments. According to the Bible, it`s part of God’s law that was written for our good, for our benefit, for Our Liberty. The concept of Sabbath is the foundation of the year of Jubilee. A day of rest, one in seven. No work, no responsibility, a day of doing nothing.
