Observing the Sabbath: Am I Deceiving Myself?

25 Jesus said to them, “Haven’t you ever read in the Scriptures what David did when he and his companions were hungry? 26 He went into the house of God (during the days when Abiathar was high priest) and broke the law by eating the sacred loaves of bread that only the priests are allowed to eat. He also gave some to his companions.”

27 Then Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath. 28 So the Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath!”
(Mark 2:23-27 NLT)

In this age where we are constantly being bombarded with overloading amount of information, all the more we need to take a day off to be still with the Lord. To wait for Him. To linger in His presence. To be renewed. To be restored.

For me, personally at least, I know, I needed to observe the Sabbath. I know sometimes I am deceiving myself, thinking as if I am observing the Sabbath by staying away from my workplace physically, but my mind is still occupied with the workload, and even bringing back stacks of paperwork to do.
