Deuteronomy 30:11-18 – God’s Commandment Is Easy – God’s Law Is Not Beyond Our Reach

Deuteronomy 30:11-18

Reflection:

For the commandment that God commands us is not too hard for us, neither is it far off.  It is intended for us.

But do we really know what is important for us?

In fact, the sabbath is said to give us rest, to give us time for ourselves and love ones.

Do we know that rest is more important than work?

How can we properly work if we do not have rest?

But, as a satire, we can properly sleep and rest, even if we don’t have work.

Oh yes, not in our current world and system, as everything revolves around money for us to live, eat, and sleep.

Not because it is, but because we choose to allow it.  Our current world system dictates it. And God knows that beforehand.

And thus, sabbath is created for that purpose, so that we can rest.
