Making the Sabbath a Delight
Help your kids really believe that “Sabbath is a happy day.”
For many children, Sabbath is a day of don’ts: don’t ride your bicycle, don’t watch TV, don’t go swimming, etc. These rules are often misinterpreted as “don’t have fun.” And for so many children, that sounds like a really boring Sabbath!
We should know better. Do we really think God intends for His special day to be boring?
In Isaiah 58:13 the Sabbath is called “a delight.” Is the Sabbath really a delight for you and your children? It may be that keeping the Sabbath holy means simply going to church faithfully and abstaining from work and personal pleasures. But what about looking at the Sabbath day as a day to delight in the Lord?
