The Jews weren't supposed to work on Saturday. "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy."
They were supposed to rest. They were supposed to remember that their Creator rested on that seventh day. They were supposed to remember that their Creator was also their Redeemer when he rescued them from their slavery. Now that's real rest.
By the act of resting, the Jews were to remember the bigger things. The best way to do that is in worship, really 'worthy-ship'. At worship a person remembers the things that are really worth something.
So the Jews weren't supposed to walk too far. That would be a distraction.
A Sabbath day's journey is only about a half of a mile. Officially it's two thousand cubits--with a cubit being about eighteen inches. It wasn't much, and it was designed to be that way. It was that way because something else was much bigger, much more important.
That's the idea behind this 'blog'. It's meant to be weekly. It's also meant to be brief. More importantly is that it will reflect that there's something else out there that's much bigger, that's much more important.
I hope you see it.
I hope you walk it.
I hope you enjoy it!
