Nehemiah 13:15-22, Exodus 23:12, Exodus 20:8-11

In Nehemiah, there was a warning against selling food on the Sabbath.  That reminded me of God’s commandment to keep the Sabbath holy.  God is okay with people working for six days, but then they (and working animals) should rest.

You’ve probably heard someone say, “Mother knows best” when she suggests something like chicken soup for a sick family member.  Mothers can have some good ideas, but really we should say, “God knows best.”  We should follow His loving fatherly commands.
