  • The Listening Post | Encountering God in Everyday Life | Page 3
    to those with a God who promises to love and care for them For those whose life is entirely up to them they cannot risk rest and play For them constant vigilance is demanded of them lest the sky falls in Having a loving God is precisely the difference between the Israelites and their Canaanite neighbours So in two places in the Old Testament God gives instruction for this practice of stopping work Do no work on the Sabbath Exodus says because God rested on the seventh day of his creation week In Deuteronomy they are told to stop work because they are not slaves anymore Children in that ancient culture show love for their dads through imitation The Sabbath is an opportunity to imitate God in the way he takes time to appreciate his own handiwork just as we imitate his creativity and craft the rest of the week like good children We are children with a heavenly father creatures with a God In a properly ordered world children and creatures find their security and livelihood from someone else not from their own industry and work ethic The Sabbath is an intentional re calibration of our centre on God as our source of security and livelihood And along the way we also re centre our souls on things that really matter our faith people we love play and leisure that keep us creative and human The Sabbath is the antidote to the pressures of a self made world which compels us to empire build hoard and trample for our own survival The Sabbath is also the way to safeguard from the tyrannical nature of work Ex slaves may be lured into thinking that hard work is the way to keep from becoming slaves again only to end up enslaving themselves Ex slaves having escaped the structure provided by the one holding they whip have a way of finding comfort in new slave masters The Sabbath is a weekly practice of personhood we do not live for work as slaves do And if we are prone to forget that on the weekdays the Sabbath is a day to correct the slave mindset But the Sabbath is not to be confused with a day off Rather it is a day on It is the day when we practice being fully alive in the life God created us to live enjoying the things God gives us for pleasure At the end of the Sabbath we re enter our work life allowing our Sabbatical mindset to overflow into the rest of our week Our work may wear us down But we know within six days there will be the opportunity again to re centre So goes the rhythm of life as a creature loved by God living outside of paradise And the Sabbath is not so much taking time off as it is honouring time Everyone gets the same time in a day and no one knows how much time they have left
