Message Series: Sabbath

The Sabbath is often forgot about in the church today.  We take the rest of the 10 Commandments, but throw that one out.  No one really know why, however.  The reason no one knows why is because there’s no good reason why we don’t still observe it.  So, tonight we looked into what the Sabbath is, why God instituted, and how we can still practice it today.  It’s supposed to be a time of rest and resetting on God.  It’s a shame that we don’t talk about this more in church.  Just 50 years ago, this was still a staple in many Christian families.  Since you, as a parent, might not know about this allow your student to share their thoughts.  Ask them:

What is the Sabbath?Sabbath
What the point?
Why don’t we do it anymore?
Should we still practice Sabbath time?  How?

I hope you’ll be surprised by what your kids know.  An maybe as you discuss this together, you can develop some habits, large or small, that allow your family to partake in a peaceful Sabbath time together throughout your week!
