Themed Science Activities Make corn starch goop. You make this by added cornstarch and water. I saw a little horse that was tied up to a cart that was absolutely loaded to the hilt. This horse was so skinny you could see every rib in him and the load was too big for him to pull. Though his owner whipped and beat him, he could only struggle with the load he was pulling.
It was obvious that he was near death, and yet his owner continued to beat him. That horse had no rest. Just go, go, go! I thought about what a curse it is to be under constant work, trying to pull a load that we are not strong enough to bear. That poor suffering horse is a perfect illustration of what Satan does to those who are not resting in God. No wonder Jesus says to us:. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. The Bible tells us that even our animals should be allowed to rest. The United States has become a workaholic nation. We have more leisure time than ever, but very little rest. There is a big difference between not working, and actually resting. The first commandment in regard to the Sabbath, is that we are not to work on that day Exodus God tells us what we are not to do. However, He also gives a second central commandment in regard to the Sabbath, telling us what we are to do. The second is a positive action command to rest on the Sabbath.
It is easier to stop working than it is to actually rest. We may stop our physical work, but be mentally just as stressed out and busy as we were the day before. The Sabbath is a day to stop from our endeavors of creation and to thank God for what we were able to accomplish and create in six days. Doing this, forces us to release the sometimes overwhelming sense of responsibility that builds up in our daily lives. The reason that so many of us including Christians are so stressed out, is because we are not honoring the Sabbath.
Even just one day a week of real quality time with God, would strengthen us spiritually far beyond where most of us are now, and help us have a better perspective on the works that God has called us to do. We might even realize that we are not God! The Sabbath helps us to remember who we are, as we rest in Him and cease from our works.
It used to be that Sunday forced everyone to rest, because most stores and businesses were closed. Now, we have the option of continuing our work.
When I was a young girl, nothing was open on Sunday. We honored that day as a day of rest. Today, since life goes on as normal on Sundays, we have to be far more deliberate in taking a Sabbath. It will not happen automatically.
Good Samaritan Theme for Preschool
Sundays are often so busy, that one who truly wants to incorporate this sense of keeping a weekly Sabbath into their lifestyle might consider choosing another day for rest, such as Saturday, the original Sabbath day. On our day of rest, we should be doing restful things. Of course, it is possible to hold an extreme view of the Sabbath that does not allow any activity to happen at all. Jesus faced constant opposition from the Pharisees in this regard.
Legalistic teaching of the day prevented even good things from taking place on the Sabbath. The Lord gave instructions about what could and could not be done on the Sabbath, as He knew our tendency to be legalistic. If the Lord had not specified this instruction, I wonder how many families would have lost their oxen due to strict observance of the Sabbath! I remember my Aunt who was a wonderful Christian lady. Jesus was constantly rebuked by the religious leaders for healing on the Sabbath, as the following story illustrates.

And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.
And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said unto the people, There are six days in which men ought to work: in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day. The Lord then answered him, and said, Thou hypocrite, doth not each one of you on the sabbath loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
Jesus showed clearly that the Sabbath was not about religious ritual, but about resting in God and doing His works. According to Jesus, the Sabbath was created for the sake of man, to ease his burdens and not add to them. God created the Sabbath for the sake of rest. It is meant to be a blessing.
Nevertheless, for many of those who seek to properly observe the Sabbath, it is a source of confusion. There are some groups that teach that if one does not observe Saturday as the true Sabbath, they are receiving the Mark of the Beast. Many sincere Christians are in a great deal of turmoil over this issue. So, what is the right day to worship the Lord — Saturday or Sunday? The answer is both! Actually, the answer is that we are to worship the Lord every day! First, let us look at the example of Jesus.
It was obvious from Scripture that Jesus kept the Sabbath. The Bible also records that in the earliest days of the Church, the Apostles and the local believers met on the Sabbath. Christianity was birthed within the structure of Judaism, and was considered a Jewish sect. Therefore, it was natural that the early Christians followed the patterns already established within the Jewish religious structure.
As Paul and others went forth on missionary journeys, they also met in the local synagogues on the Sabbath.

And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. Therefore, we can see that there is obvious New Testament precedence for meeting on Saturday, in the Jewish tradition. However, the New Testament has much more to say on this issue. The following scene is a key illustration in understanding the Sabbath issue. Paul is in Corinth, and as usual, begins his habit of visiting the local synagogue:. And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
