Devos of the Week: Mark 2:27

“Jesus said to them, ‘The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” For those of you who follow this weekly blog, forgive me. Over the past few months I have needed a Sabbath from all my work. This blog has been weekly for over 5 years now so I hope a short break was not too much of an inconvenience.   As I begin again let me draw your minds and hearts to Jesus’ words.  Why was Sabbath made for humans? What need does it fill and how does it rest fill it?  How’s your weekly Sabbath going these days?  Jesus, thank you that beyond rules to follow, you care for our holistic health and thriving; grant us the Sabbath rest we need. Amen.
